Many are wondering how to fix the Diablo 4 ‘game servers not available’ issue.
As you might expect from thousands of people trying to get onto Diablo 4 servers at once, you may be seeing the error message that reads ‘game servers not available’. We’ve already received a message from the Diablo 4 lead that servers could be “bumpy” on launch, which is to be expected from ridiculous amounts of gamers trying to access it at once.

Stick with us, and we’ll explain everything you need to know regarding Diablo 4’s server status.
How to fix Diablo 4 ‘game servers not available’
First up, you’ll want to establish whether the issue is actually on your end, or if the servers are actually down. We’ve seen a considerable amount of error codes so there’s a good chance it won’t be from your end.
The best way to check though is via Blizzard’s website. Here, you’ll find a list of times when there will be planned maintenance outages. It’s also possible to check online whether there’s a temporary unplanned outage. Hint: if there’s an outage we’re probably covering it!
A third option is via a third-party website, such as DownDetector for Diablo which you can keep handily bookmarked.
If you’re not getting anywhere with these suggestions, there’s a fair chance it could be a problem your end. Below we’ve made a couple of suggestions that should have you accessing the server in no time!
Update Nvidia or AMD drivers and operating system
In case you’re unaware, outdated drivers are a common culprit for compatibility issues. If you’re in need of a step-by-step guide, we’ve got you covered below:
Power cycle your network devices
Power cycling your network devices will reset the connection between your modern/router and your internet service provider. To do this
- Power down all computers connected to your modem or router.
- Turn off and unplug the modern/router itself, and wait at least 60 seconds.
- Plug the modem/router back in and turn it on. Wait for its connections to fully restart.
- Turn back on your computer and allow it to reconnect to the internet
Close background applications
Background applications like Spotify should eliminate potential conflicts between programs and allow you to reconnect to the servers.
Turn off any VPNs or proxy
These can mess with the login module of the game. You can turn your VPN on from within its app. To disable any proxies follow the instructions from Blizzard here.
Finally, contact customer support
Your last port of call is to contact Blizzard customer support. Explain the issue with reference to the error code your experiencing, with all the fixes you’ve already tried. Hopefully they can come up with a solution for you.
