Players of Diablo 4 really want to know more about the first season of the game, which is planned to start in July. When asked about the next livestream from the developers, Adam Fletcher, who is in charge of Diablo 4’s global community, said that they will share more news later this week. Diablo’s General Manager, Rod Fergusson, later confirmed on Social Media that they will announce the official release date for Season 1 next week.
Announcing next week!

There has been some confusion about how the Battle Pass will work with existing characters in Diablo 4. Even though Fergusson has provided an explanation, it may not be the answer that many players wanted. He confirmed that players will need to create a new character for each Battle Pass if they want to participate in seasonal questlines, the season journey, or use new mechanics.
While this is how previous Diablo games and other similar action role-playing games typically operate, newer players who don’t want to start over have not reacted positively to this information. It’s important to note that you must complete the Diablo 4 campaign before accessing the Battle Pass, which allows you to skip directly to the endgame. This way, you can avoid repeating the same quests again.
