Season 2, which is titled Season of Blood, had been set to begin on October 17 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST.
“We have encountered some technical issues with our current build and will be delaying Season of Blood’s start time by a few hours to remedy these issues,” Blizzard explained.
“Once we have more information, we’ll update you right away. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate the feedback you have provided and your patience.”
Season of Blood is now live and the game has been released on Steam.
The game’s second season was announced in August. It includes a new questline in which players recruit a vampire hunter voiced by actress Gemma Chan.
“Season of Blood will introduce a new Questline for you to uncover, Vampiric Powers to wield against their originators, 5 additional endgame bosses with the ability to target specific Unique and Uber Unique items as a drop, and more,” according to Blizzard.
The launch of Diablo 4’s new season coincides with the game’s planned Steam release today.
