Diablo IV was shown off during the Xbox + Bethesda showcase this morning, announcing both the Necromancer as its final class, as well as officially announcing the ARPG will release in 2023.

During the showcase we got not just a glimpse at the Necromancer through the cinematic trailer, but also a first look at gameplay running on the Xbox Series X, complete with developer voiceovers. We also finally found out when (though not exactly when) Diablo IV will be in player's hands. Pre-registration sign ups for the Diablo IV beta went live ahead of the showcase, and on the stage this morning Blizzard announced that the upcoming ARPG will launch in 2023. 

While it was shown off at the Xbox + Bethesda showcase (which makes sense with the current ongoing acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft), obviously Diablo IV is coming to other platforms. However, while we don't have an exact date on the release date, it does give us a window to work with now and for players on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC next year.
