Diablo IV fans will have to wait just a tiny bit longer to dig into Season of Blood, which is scheduled to launch today. Blizzard says that technical issues have forced it to delay the new vampire-driven season’s release by “a few hours.”

“We have encountered some technical issues with our current build and will be delaying Season of Blood’s start time by a few hours to remedy these issues,” a Diablo IV representative wrote. “Once we have more information, we’ll update you right away. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate the feedback you have provided and your patience.”

While its initial launch was well-received by fans, it has been criticized for its handling of class balance, unique items, and monetization. As a result, Blizzard has been working basically around the clock to try and address fan feedback in order to placate the comunity.
