Diablo 2’s remaster suffered from various launch issues related to crashing, high GPU temps, characters being deleted, server overload, and authentication problems. And now, some are even getting the much-feared black screen in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Here’s what you need to do if the game is freezing and you are unable to continue playing.
How to Fix Black Screen in Diablo 2 Resurrected?
There is no official fix to resolve the black screen issue in Diablo 2 Resurrected irrespective of the time when the freezing occurred (at launch or mid-way). All you can do right now is close the game and relaunch it. Use alt + ctrl + del to switch to Task Manager.

There are a few things you can check just to be sure that the issue isn’t from your end:
- Check your internet connection.
- Download the latest version of your GPU drivers.
- Give any necessary permissions to the firewall and/or your antivirus.
- Check the Diablo II resurrected server status.
- Ensure that your PC supports the minimum or recommended system requirements for D2R.
