As you may have noticed, earlier this evening Diablo 4 Season 2: Season of Blood got off to a very rocky start.
With fingers poised to launch into Season 2, it fell a bit flat with the launch being delayed for technical reasons. After a few hours Season 2 finally got underway but things are not working 100% as yet.
We've encountered some complications and will be delaying Season of Blood’s start time a few hours to remedy these issues.
We'll share updates as soon as we have them. We appreciate your patience.

As of writing, crossplay between PC and consoles is currently not available and there’s not ETA as to when that will be resolved.
I can’t help but feel that with each major update that gets released, Blizzard should rethink plans of not having a PTR server for Diablo 4 prior to major updates. There are probably some technical reasons at the moment as to why they are kicking against the idea but it’s not a great look when you are hyping a major update such as this one only to have it fall flat when it launches.
Keep an eye on the status updates in the launcher for a fix to the crossplay problem.
