We’re about to hit the 20th season of Diablo 3 which is an impressive milestone no matter which way you slice it.
While many players might be burnt on the game by now, the beginning of a season is always the most exciting time to play Diablo as you’ll be able to start the grind all over again.
Despite how stale the game may or may not feel for you, looting is something that has always felt good in Diablo 3.
As we enter February, we know the end is near, but Blizzard hasn’t exactly given us an exact time yet. Usually, when we’re close, they will tweet out that the season is ending and give us some information about what that means.
Blizzard hasn’t given a set end date yet but we know seasons run for roughly three months. Once this new season is revealed, we’ll also get a chance to test out some of the changes on the PTR before they officially go live.
When Does Diablo 3 Season 19 end?
Season 19 started up on November 22, which would mean three months later would put us on February 22. That ended up being pretty close, as the official end date has been revealed to be March 1.
The seasons don’t run for exactly three months but they are usually in that ballpark, so we weren’t too far off.
Blizzard did drop what appears to be one of the first clues about the start of a new season. On February 6, a new PTR patch went live that will run for two weeks. The PTR ends on the 20, which isn’t too far before the end of the season.
This same patch also introduced three new class sets for the Barbarian, Witch Doctor, and Wizard respectively, so it might be worth giving them a look while the wait continues.

These sets might not end up shaking up the meta in any way, but they will still give players an option to try out some new builds, which is always appreciated. Now that we know when the season ends, now we have to figure out when the next one begins.
When Does Season 20 Start?
Blizzard likes to take at least two weeks off between the seasons for players to wind down and take a bit of break from the game. Seasons are grueling, especially if you’re someone who rushes through it all and runs out of things to do.
If they keep this up then we should be able to expect Season 20 to start around March 15. As it turns out, the date wasn’t too far off since the start has been officially announced as March 13.
This means the new season begins on a Friday so players will have a whole weekend to test out the three new class sets and blow through the start of a season with their friends or even by themselves.
We’ll see you there! What class are you going to choose for Season 20?
