Season 12 – Start & End
UPDATE: Blizzard has announced the end of Season 11 and start of Season 12!
There isn’t any official information about the start date of Season 12 available yet, but data from previous Seasons allows to make a good guess!
Below you can see the start and end dates of the more recent previous Seasons:
- S7: August 5, 2016 – October 14, 2016
- S8: October 21, 2016 – December 30, 2016
- S9: January 6, 2017 – March 17, 2017
- S10: March 31, 2017 – June 23, 2017
- S11: July 20, 2017 – October 20, 2017
- S12: November 9, 2017 – February 11, 2018
Season 11 will be ending on the following dates and times:
North America: Friday, October 20 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT
Europe: Friday, October 20 @ 5:00 p.m. CEST
Asia: Friday, October 20 @ 5:00 p.m. KST
Season 12 will begin about three weeks afterward on the dates below:
North America: Thursday, November 9 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT
Europe: Thursday, November 9 @ 5:00 p.m. CEST
Asia: Thursday, November 9 @ 5:00 p.m. KST
Note: Season 12 will begin on a Thursday to ensure there is adequate time to respond to potential issues with Seasons before the weekend begins.
As you can see, the usual duration of a Season is about 2,5 months and the time between Seasons is about 1-2 weeks (except S10-S11: 4 weeks inbetween). A good guess for the end of Season 11 is the beginning/middle of October and Season 12 starting in the middle/end of the same month.
