As you may well know, the Xbox Series X typically uses the Xbox One X version of games when running in backwards compatibility mode, which means it can benefit from specific enhancements such as native 4K resolutions.
Diablo 3, however, hasn't followed that trend up until now. When playing the game on Xbox Series X, it actually uses the Xbox One S code, which means it's locked at 1080p resolution rather than 4K. That's all about to change in the very near future though, as Blizzard has confirmed it'll be fixed in the next big patch for the game:
"Some good news here… We expect a fix for this in the next big patch for D3 which will be with the next season but just wanted to update everyone on this. Sorry this one took a bit to tackle."
Ultimately, this means Diablo 3 will soon be able to run at 4K, 60fps on Xbox Series X, rather than being restricted as it has been up until now. There's no release date yet, but it looks like the patch will be arriving this Spring.
Good news for Diablo fans, then! This has taken a long time to sort out, so it's good to see progress being made.
