Path Of Exile 2 Will Probably Come To PS5 And Xbox Scarlett, But Not Switch
The developers of the action RPG tease plans for the future.
It appears Path of Exile 2 will be coming to PlayStation 5 and the next Xbox--but not Nintendo Switch. In an interview at ExileCon in Auckland, Grinding Gear founder Chris Wilson told GameSpot that the plan is to release Path of Exile 2 on the current-generation of consoles and the ones to follow, though Nintendo's hybrid console seems to be left out.
"We will update Path of Exile into Path of Exile 2 on all the platforms it is currently on," he explained. "We, of course, will target new consoles as they're available as well. And with our release timeline, it is very likely [Path of Exile 2] is on the new consoles as well."
Sony's PS5 and Microsoft's next Xbox, currently codenamed Project Scarlett, are both slated for release during Holiday 2020. Path of Exile 2 is among the first titles we know are, or might be released on the new wave of consoles. Recently, Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs 2, Gods & Monsters, and Rainbow Six Quarantine are headed to PS5 and the next-generation Xbox.
Path of Exile 2 does not have a release date. Wilson said during his keynote address at ExileCon that the studio won't release the game until it's confident in the quality of the product.
As for the Switch, Wilson confirmed to GameSpot that the studio hasn't decided one way or the other at this point, but it doesn't seem likely.
"We haven't decided," Wilson said about the possibility of Path of Exile 2 coming to Switch. "Honestly, there isn't a secret project in development for Switch. I personally would like there to be. It's just the team look horrified when I try to put more work on their plate."
