Diablo 4 Error Code 316719 is one of many pesky errors keeping players from fully enjoying the current beta for Blizzard's upcoming action RPG. It can be incredibly frustrating because of where it appears — and because it sends you back to the dreaded waiting queue, forcing you to languish through long waits times all over again. 

What is Error Code 316719 in the Diablo 4 Beta?

Error Code 316719 appears to be afflicting Diablo 4 Beta players randomly, as many bugs and glitches of this type are wont to do. Unfortunately, it kicks players out of the game, causing them to lose created characters and/or sit through long waiting queues, some reaching upwards of 90 minutes.

It sometimes coincides with Error Code 300202, Error Code 315306, and Error Code 300008. You may also run into 34202 from time to time. 

What Causes Error Code 316719?

So what causes Error Code 316719? Right now, nobody seems to know for sure. Though a direct cause hasn't been pinpointed yet, players are reporting multiple instances that could be triggering the error: 

  • Leveling up a character.
  • Selecting a character.
  • Exiting character creation.
  • Simply starting the game. 

All of that considered, it does appear that Blizzard support is aware of Error Code 316719. A post on the game's forum regarding this specific issue from Zuvykree (Customer Support) acknowledges that the "team is on it," referring to a potential fix that could be inbound.

The same user references "server stability issues going down," which could point to Error 316719 being server related, which would make sense considering the massive influx of players to the Diablo 4 Beta.
