The Diablo II: Resurrected 2.4 update release date is finally down for next month, developer Blizzard confirms, after a number of last-minute delays – which will bring a ranked competitive Ladder system to the venerable action RPG game.
Diablo II: Resurrected patch 2.4 was revealed in January this year, hit the PTR on January 25, before returning with all-new changes earlier this month. The biggest addition is the long-awaited Ladder system and a series of modes that support ranked competitive multiplayer.
Both the new update and Ladder were supposed to be out by the end of this month, but this is Blizzard we’re dealing with so it was always going to be delayed. According to a post on the Diablo forum, the team “unfortunately ran into quite a few showstoppers that did not appear on PTR but were present in production environments” – meaning that the patch is pushed back to mid-April with the Ladder system two weeks after that.
