How to fix Diablo 4 queued for Game Start Game Pending

Of course there's gonna be login issues...

In Diablo 4, when you try to load up the game, you may find yourself staring at the login screen with "Game Start Game Pending" in the middle of your screen. Login issues happen, but this one is actually not that bad compared to some others. Here's how to fix the Diablo 4 queued for game start game pending error.

How to get past Game Start Game Pending load in Diablo IV

To solve the Game Start Game Pending error in Diablo 4, you must be patient, as this is a server problem. The truth of the matter is that this isn't an issue on your side, but rather on Diablo 4's serves instead. If you see this message pop up, it means that you are in a queue to enter the server, but so are many others.

If you're having this problem, it means that Diablo 4's servers are packed. In that case, you're bound to see this message pop up sooner or later. While waiting a few minutes tends to resolve this, Blizzard engineers are trying to solve the issue. So until this happens, be patient and don't give up!

Additionally, your login attempt may be stuck, so if you've been waiting an extended period of time already, I recommend closing the game and re-entering the queue. Diablo 4's queue times have been surprisingly short when servers work, so you should not have to wait long if you do this. Again though, just waiting a few minutes and being patient tends to make this problem go away on its own.
