This Game Cannot Be Played Yet Diablo 4 Beta

The This Game Cannot Be Played Yet issue in Diablo 4 Beta has three potential causes. The first one is that the beta hasn’t kicked off yet. Take a look at our How to Start Diablo 4 Beta guide to see if it has begun. Assuming that it has, then the most likely cause is that you need to refresh the Battle.net client. It should be enough to simply close the application completely and then restart it. When I say close completely, I mean exit it entirely. Use the Task Manager if necessary. When you boot the launcher back up, the Diablo 4 beta should be working properly. You might need to update Battle.net manually if you’ve disabled the automatic process.

The third and final possible source of the Diablo 4 Beta This Game Cannot Be Played Yet issue is that the beta has wrapped up. Remember, the early access beta lasts from March 17th to March 19th. The open beta will take place from March 24th to March 26th. So, if you’re trying to play it after the end dates, you won’t be able to. However, for the most part, I think it’s the restarting of the launcher that is going to be the main solution.
