D2R 2.6 (PTR) Release Date, Season 2 End Date, Season 3 Start Date | Diablo 2 Resurrected S3 Ladder Reset Timing

1/19/2023 2:24:16 PM

In Diablo II Resurrected, the Season 3 Ladder Reset is already on the agenda. Here let's talk about the schedule of D2R Season 3 Ladder Reset featuring the Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.6 & PTR release time, Season 2 End Date, and Season 3 Start Date, as well as break down some tips for the Ladder Season Reset.


Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.6 Season 3 Ladder Reset Timing

As Season 2 continues on its way in D2 Resurrected, all eyes are now on the next Ladder Reset. Finally, we got some news about the timing for Season 3  ladder reset from D2's Global Community Lead Adam "Pezradar" Fletcher. However, no further exact dates and details regarding the D2R 2.6 update and the Season 3 Ladder Reset are yet known. But we can make some guesses based on past season release schedules and rules.  Here are some of our predictions about the D2R 2.6 Update schedule:


D2R Season 2 End Date & Season 3 Start Date: February 16th, 2023 (Confirmed)

Update: Season 3 of Diablo 3 Resurrected is set to start on February 16th, and Season 2 Ends at the same time!

The Diablo II Resurrected 2.6 ladder reset for Season 3 should arrive around mid-February, as indicated by PezRadar in a post on Reddit. This means that the start of Season 3 is about to end when the reset happens, and Blizzard is keen to bring the New content releases and updates scheduled for Thursdays such as Season 1 starting on April 14th (Thursday), 2022, and Season 2 starting on October 6th (Thursday), 2022. Therefore, it is not difficult for us to speculate that D2R Ladder Reset for Season 3 is likely to happen on February 16th, 2023, which is the only Thursday in mid-February.


D2R 2.6 Release Date: February 2nd, 2023 (TBC)

Looking back at the schedule of the patches updated for the previous two seasons in Diablo 2 Resurrected, the D2R 2.4 patch was released on April 14 that is two weeks before the season, and the D2R 2.5 patch went live in the game on September 22 which is also 2 weeks earlier than Season 3. So we seem to think that the new patch that is closely related to the new season will be released on the date 2 weeks before Ladder reset. And if Blizzard follows this pattern, we can expect that the release date of the D2R 2.6 Patch will be set on February 2, according to our speculation of the Season 3 Ladder Reset Date (February 16th).


D2R 2.6 PTR Date (Start & End Date): January 24th - January 31th (Confirmed)

Update: The 2.6 PTR is confirmed officially to roll out from January 24 at 10:00 a.m. PST and to January 31 at 10:00 a.m. PST

Usually, the PTR will be released before the update to test the actual implementation of the new content in the game and server stability. For the release of Season 1, Blizzard launched the 2.4 PTR for a week for players to test the Ladder content, but the official release of this update was a month later. In Season 2, due to the addition of new terror zones and sunder charms, the 2.5 PTR lasted for nearly a month (August 25th to September 19th, 2022) and the patch was officially released only three days after the end. Taken together, the 2.6 patch will not bring new content like terror zones, but it is likely to add D2R Season 3 ladder-only runewords that were missing in season 2 to help players update their character's game experience. And since there is less than a month left before the ladder reset promised by PezRadar is implemented in mid-February, the tight time is likely to make Blizzard not release 2.6 PTR and directly release the official update. And if Blizzard still arranges a regular PTR for the 2.6 patch, we expect it to go live at the end of January, and the specific time is likely to be around January 23 to January 30.
