Exciting news for gamers and fans of the Diablo franchise as the new rumor is about a special edition Xbox Series X console being developed to celebrate the upcoming release of Diablo 4.
Microsoft has a history of creating unique console designs for popular games, like the Oreo Xbox Series S, and Diablo 4 is no exception.
Diablo 4’s new XBOX Series X console
Blizzard’s highly anticipated Diablo 4 has been in the news lately with the release of its beta version last week, and fans can’t wait to get their hands on the full game.

This isn’t the first time, though
This won’t be the first time that Blizzard and Microsoft have partnered to create limited-edition hardware. In 2021, leading up to the release of Diablo 2 Resurrected, Microsoft held a giveaway for a custom Diablo 2-themed Xbox Series X, featuring a 3D Diablo emerging from the top of the device.
Microsoft has created unique console designs for a wide variety of franchises and developers, from The Mandalorian to Deathloop and Pac-Man.
