Diablo 4 does not have the Diablo 3 feature of Rebirth but it may be coming at some point.
In response to a query on Twitter, Adam Fletcher added:
Rebirth isn’t a feature in D4 yet. But we’ve heard this a bunch so the team is aware.

For those who don’t play Diablo 3, Rebirth essentially allows you to take an existing character and make it a Seasonal character starting at level 1 with all the gear removed and sent to your normal stash.
You would have to be pretty attached to a character to be worried about having this added as a feature but if it’s in Diablo 3 then I don’t see why it shouldn’t be added. This is how it works in D3…
Any of the gear or items equipped on your character or in your inventory is automatically stripped from the hero and mailed to your non-Seasonal characters, similar to the rollover process that occurs with your stash space when a Season ends. Accomplishments like achievements, crafting recipes learned, artisan levels, or unlocked stash tabs are left behind as part of your non-Seasonal progression. However, personal records like your character name or time played are retained and carry on through your Seasonal adventures.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using Season Rebirth:
- Gear mailed to your non-Seasonal characters is only available for reclamation for up to 30 days from the time it is mailed!
- You may only Rebirth up to three characters per Season.
- Hardcore characters who have fallen are not eligible to use the Season Rebirth feature.
