What is Diablo 4 Error Code 300008?

Diablo 4 Error 300008 is connected to server issues, causing player sessions to time out because of the amount of people trying to access the game at a single time. Since Diablo 4 is an always-online game, there’s always a (normally low) possibility there will be issues connecting to its servers.

It sometimes coincides with Error Code 300202, Error Code 315306, and Error Code 316719, and it can appear at almost any point during play. Here are just a few of the places players have encountered the bug:

  • While playing.
  • After creating a character.
  • After selecting a class.
  • Trying to start the game.
  • After getting other error codes.

The problem is that the waiting queue times for Diablo 4 can be quite long for some affected by Error 300008. Some have been kicked or DCed and find themselves facing an hour-long (or more) wait time to get back into the game. Some have lost characters and progress because of the issue, as well.

Is There a Fix for Error Code 300008?

This early in the testing phase, there is no direct fix for Error Code 300008. Indeed, because the error message says that “your request has timed out,” it’s a server-side issue that players don’t really have any control over. And you’ll just have to hope you don’t run into it while trying to start the game or while playing.

It’s always good trouble-shooting practice to test your connection and reset your router to make absolutely sure the problem isn’t client-side. For example, my internet is terrible and dropped randomly while writing this article, so it never hurts to take a look if you run into this error.

But outside of that, there’s not much to do except wait.

For now, that’s what we know about Error Code 300008 in Diablo 4. If there are any updates or permanent fixes, we’ll be sure to add those to this guide. Until then, good luck!
