NOTE: Diablo 3 Season 27 is now live.
If Diablo Immortal isn’t quite doing it for you, don’t worry, because the Diablo 3 Season 27 Release Date is fast approaching. On this page, you’ll find all the important details about the next Diablo 3 season in one place. We’ll also use this space to countdown until the Season 27 start time, with all the latest news as we get it. For now, read on for everything you need to know about Diablo 3 Season 27.
When Does Diablo 3 Season 27 Start?
Update: The Diablo 3 Twitter account has confirmed that Season 26 ends on August 21 (A Sunday) and that Diablo 3 Season 27 will start on August 26 at 5 p.m. PDT/CEST/KST.
At the time of writing, there is no confirmed release date for Diablo 3 Season 27. However, based on what we know about the way Diablo 3 operates, it’s not too hard to work out when Diablo 3 Season 27 will start.
For those new to the game, Diablo 3 seasons typically follow a pretty rigid formula. For instance, each Diablo 3 season will normally last 12 weeks as a bare minimum. That being said, more recently Seasons have lasted a lot longer. Both Season 23 and 22 ran for 18 and 15 weeks respectively, and Season 24 lasted 19 weeks. Blizzard also routinely end every season on a Sunday, with new seasons always starting on a Friday. Given the developers rarely deviate from this pattern we should be able to give a decent estimate on when Season 27 will start.
Here comes the math. Since Season 26 started on April 15, if we assume it was to last 18 weeks, it would end on 21 August 2021 (a Sunday). This would mean Diablo 3 Season 27 would start on 26 August 2022 (a Friday). Of course, it’s possible that the season could last longer, so we may even see Season 27 start at some point in September if the developers require more time to test the new season on the PTR.
What time will Diablo 3 Season 27 Start?
Update - on August 26 at 5 p.m. PDT/CEST/KST
Although we’re still a little hazy on the day Season 26 will start, every new Diablo 3 season always starts at the same times around the world. Players should expect Season 26 to start at 5pm PDT in North America, 5pm CEST in Europe, and 5pm KST in Asia.
It’s also worth noting that typically the launch times will vary depending on if you’re playing on PC or Console. Diablo 3 console gamers might have to wait a little longer, with Season 26 possibly launching at 1am GMT the following day.
Diablo 3 Season 27 Season Theme
For the sake of anyone who doesn’t know, Diablo 3 has a new season theme with every new season. Sometimes these are more permanent, like the follower revamp in Season 23. On other occasions, these changes only last for one season, such as Ethereal Weapons in Season 24, or the Soul Shards in Season 25.
Diablo 3 Season 26 gave us another perm addition with the brand new ‘Echoing Nightmare‘ activity.
At the time of writing it’s not been announced what the Seasonal Theme of Diablo 3 Season 27 will be, but we’ll be sure to update this page as we get more intel.
Here’s what you need to know about the Season 27 Season Theme:
Season 27 introduces a new type of consumable item called Angelic Crucibles. Once uncovered by Nephalem, these heavenly artifacts can be used to Sanctify any equippable Legendary item. Sanctifying an item reforges it to have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes while also preserving the item’s Legendary Power. In addition, this process adds one of three new powers unique to each class.
Season Theme Details:
- Angelic Crucibles and Sanctified Items can only be acquired in Seasonal play and will not transfer to your non-seasonal character when the season ends.
- Angelic Crucibles can drop anywhere in Sanctuary at level 70.
- Players can obtain as many Sanctified items as they would like, however, only one Sanctified item can be equipped at a time.
- Sanctified items can be Sanctified again using another Angelic Crucible.
- No stats are preserved when Sanctifying an item.
- Only level 70 equippable items can be Sanctified—crafted items cannot be Sanctified.
- Followers cannot equip Sanctified items.
Details on the three Class-Specific Sanctified Powers can be found on the link.
