Diablo 4 is all set to release on June 6th, and its main storyline is set years after the events of the Reaper of Souls expansion in Diablo 3. Blizzard has recently released an open beta on 24th Match 2023 and ended it on 27th March 2023. A ton of players all over the world installed the beta right away. But now that the beta is over, should you uninstall the Diablo 4 beta version? Well, that depends if there’s another beta planned.
Will there be another Diablo 4 beta?
As of now, Blizzard hasn’t announced any plans regarding the release of another beta. Not to mention, the game is launching after two months on June 6th. So, there’s little to no chance of another beta releasing between the first beta and the launch version. But then again, something like that did happen in the past with World of Warcraft. However, that’s a long shot and rarely happens.
Should you uninstall the Diablo 4 beta?
Look at it this way. If you have storage space to spare, then keep the beta in case a second beta is released, which would be quite rare. Also, there have been instances in the past where the Battle.net launcher detected the presence of previous game version files. So, the launcher only downloaded the files they needed and used the assets from the previous game version to merge everything.
Basically, the textures and some other assets of the beta can be used with the newly updated files to create the launch version files. This allows you to save on Bandwidth and allows for quicker download times. However, that may not happen, and Blizzard may require you to re-download the entire game once again. In that case, keeping the Diablo 4 beta would be a waste of space. So, if you have storage space to spare, keep the beta.
But if you have very limited space on your SSD and need some free space immediately, then there’s no point in keeping the beta. Uninstall the beta and reinstall the launch version directly when that is released. Not to mention, downloading a fresh copy of the game during the launch is always recommended. With a fresh copy of the game, chances of encountering game-breaking errors are usually very low.
