Diablo 2: Resurrected Servers Are Up, But Some Issues Persist
Blizzard is investigating issues with characters being locked, but servers should be up.
Diablo II: Resurrected has been out for a few games, and though the worst server issues seem to be fixed, there are still a few problems that have yet to be addressed and could see you lose progress or access to the game. One of these is avoidable, however, if you simply get a little creative with your name choices.
On Twitter, the Blizzard customer support account said it was trying to identify and resolve issues with "characters locked from play" and is also aware of an issue with authentication servers causing false failed login attempts.
[#D2R] We are continuing to identify and resolve issues with characters locked from play. Thank you for your patience.— Blizzard CS - The Americas (@BlizzardCS) September 24, 2021
Players have reported being unable to create new characters or log in to existing ones. Issues creating and joining worlds hosted by other players are also being reported, as are issues with missing characters or black screens after selecting a character. Players should also avoid making a character to play offline-only with the same name as their online character, as there is a bug causing issues with this at the moment.
And speaking of restarts - at 1 PM PDT, D2R servers will go offline for approximately 45 minutes of maintenance as we continue to work the problem. If you're online, please logout before the servers go offline. Again, thanks for your patience during this time.— Rod Fergusson (@RodFergusson) September 23, 2021
Diablo II: Resurrected brings Blizzard's action-RPG classic into the modern age with updated visuals and small quality-of-life improvements, while keeping the game's original gameplay intact. Some features included in the original Diablo II, like TCP/IP support, are not included in Diablo II: Resurrected. Today's launch also sees the game ported to consoles for the first time.
Diablo II: Resurrected is the company's first game to launch following an explosive state of California lawsuit accusing Activision Blizzard of fostering a "frat boy" culture of harassment and discrimination against women. The lawsuit's allegations led to the departure of numerous Blizzard veterans, including former Diablo IV game director Luis Barriga.
