Diablo 3's upcoming update, patch 2.5.0, will bring several different augments with it, such as new Primal Ancient items, the Armory, Crafting Mat Storage and a swath of other improvements. But when is patch 2.5.0 coming out? Here's what we know so far. 

Diablo 3 Patch 2.5.0 release date: When will the update hit?

Diablo 3's 2.5.0 patch is available right now for testing via the PTR servers, but the patch has yet to receive a release date just yet. As mentioned in our guide to the changes PC players would see from patch 2.5.0, however, it's reported that Blizzard has confirmed the previous patch notes had yet to be finalized and would be going through changes before the patch was live for everyone. 

There have been several changes to the patch notes, including the following text added to the Primal Ancients as of Tuesday:

These items are much more rare than Ancient items and have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes, including the item's Legendary Power

Note: Primal Ancients will only begin dropping after a character on the player's account has reached Greater Rift 70 Solo

There are separate unlocks for normal and Hardcore characters, as well as seasonal and non-seasonal characters

The stats on these items will be tailored to the character class you are playing when the item first drops
Primal Ancient items salvage into 15 Forgotten Souls

Ancient Items

Now salvage into 3 Forgotten Souls

This is an indication that patch 2.5.0 may be on its way out to users soon as developers have had a chance to examine and take into account player feedback about the Primal Ancient items

When there's a concrete release date set in stone, we'll keep you updated, as well as news on the game's season 10 updates when they roll out.
