Path Of Exile's Next Expansion Has Been Delayed Because Of Cyberpunk 2077
The game's 3.13 endgame expansion was meant to hit in December--but December's looking busy now.
Path of Exile has delayed its 3.13 endgame expansion out of December, but not because developer Grinding Gear Games won't be able to complete it by then. Instead, it's been delayed because of an entirely different delay--Cyberpunk 2077 moving its release date to December 10 has messed up their plans.
"We were previously targeting a launch date of December 11 for our 3.13 end-game expansion," the developer said on its forum. However, now that Cyberpunk 2077 is releasing at the same time, the developer is pushing the update back to January.
"We still expect to finish 3.13 by early/mid-December," the post reads. "The scope of this expansion will remain unchanged. During the month of delay before release, we will start work on the 3.14 expansion."
This means that if Cyberpunk 2077 gets delayed again--and let's be honest, it very well might--Path of Exile could potentially move the date forward again, as their main concern is that they "do not want to put our players in a position of having to choose between these two games." The game was delayed because of the difficulties CD Projekt Red has faced getting the game running on PS4 and Xbox One. (You can read our Cyberpunk 2077 review now.)
Path of Exile will, however, run a multi-week event over the holiday period to make up for this delay, although the exact details of this have not been figured out yet.
