A New Diablo 4 Xbox Series X Edition Could Be Announced Soon, Suggests Rumor

The prospect is hinted by a prominent leaker in the industry.

Story Highlights

  • Microsoft could soon announce a new Diablo 4 Xbox Series X edition, as revealed by the prominent leaker billbil-kun.
  • The announcement date is currently unknown, but it is expected to release alongside the upcoming action RPG by Blizzard Entertainment.
  • No exterior design for the new model has been confirmed yet. Moreover, it will cost a staggering $559.99 in the United States.
  • Diablo 4 is slated to release on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, the Series family, and PC. It will see a global release on June 6th, 2023.

A special Xbox Series X variant inspired by Blizzard Entertainment’s upcoming Diablo 4 could soon be headed to the market. The fables of the new Series X model have been brought by a prominent PlayStation Plus and games industry leaker, billbil-kun, suggesting that it is set to come out in the future. Moreover, the arrival of the new console is supposedly confirmed to align with the game’s release on June 6th, 2023.

As per the notable leaker, it is unknown whether the model will boast a Diablo 4-themed exterior for now. However, the leaker also focused on the word “bundle” in its reference, which hints that it will likely feature a unique theme alongside a controller relating to the new action RPG. Moreover, the insider has also iterated on the retail price; it will drain the pockets of $559.99 in the United States.

The official announcement date for the new Xbox Series X Diablo 4 edition is currently to be announced. Regardless, it makes sense for Microsoft to release the new variant with the Diablo 4 release. Given the admirable track record of the leaker, the rumor is likely to come true in the future, and we could soon witness the official reveal of the Diablo 4 edition Xbox Series X model. 

The leaker is well-renowned for detailing many PlayStation Plus lineups in the past ahead of their official reveal. Moreover, billbil-kun is also responsible for surfacing GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition’s arrival on Steam and Epic Games Store. Nevertheless, we still suggest taking the new rumor with a slight grain of salt. Many details are currently lacking, but it is not too far-fetched for Microsoft to make such a move.

Many prominent custom Xbox Series S and Series X editions have been birthed out of collaborations in the past. Microsoft also collaborated with Blizzard Entertainment many a year ago to create a Diablo 2-inspired Xbox Series X model. For instance, the vast brand only recently unveiled the Xbox Series S Oreo-themed Edition a month ago. The Diablo 4 Series X edition will prove to be just another piece in its extensive collection. 

The upcoming action RPG is all the hype in the gaming industry, and fans are quite excited about the alluring entry. However, Diablo 4 has already started garnering some negative criticism based on recent gameplay featured by the team. The fans have said it looks more like a Diablo 3 remastered version instead of a new title. It is also rumored to arrive on the Xbox Game Pass service if the Microsoft-Activision merger goes through.

Diablo 4 is the latest iteration in the Diablo franchise, coming out on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, the Series family, and PC. Diablo 4’s early access beta is only live for the users who pre-ordered the title—meanwhile, the open beta launches on March 24th on Friday for every player.
