Path of Exile delayed 3.13 expansion to make way for "Cyberpunk

  • Path of Exile will not try to compete with the freight train named "Cyberpunk 2077", so its upcoming 3.13 expansion plan has been postponed for a month.
     
    So far, the biggest news report in the gaming industry this week is the latest release of the highly anticipated "Cyberpunk 2077". If we notice the game trend throughout 2020, it is that the release date of Cyberpunk usually follows the development of the game. This trend seems to be correct, because the Grinding Gear Games team essentially admits that it cannot Compete with POE Currency. On Wednesday, the team announced that the next expansion of "Path of Exile" will be postponed by one month to accommodate the new release date of "Cyberpunk 2077".
     
    We previously set the goal to be released on December 11 for the 3.13 final game expansion. Yesterday, CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on December 10. We don't want to put players in a position where they have to choose between these two games, so we decided to postpone the release of "Path of Exile" 3.13 until January.
     
    We still hope to complete 3.13 by early December/mid-December. The extended range will remain unchanged. In the month before the release, we will start working on the 3.14 extension. In order to allow you to still play some interesting exiles during the Christmas/New Year holidays, we plan to hold at least one multi-week event (for example, flash Back). Once a plan is made, we will confirm the details of these events.
     
    Although this delay hopes not to affect our development schedule, it may cause our release schedule to change in 2021. We will post details on this as soon as we have more information about these dates and when they will be announced.
     
    Wilson previously pointed out during Harvest's expansion that COVID-19 slightly affected the development of Path of Exile, but as New Zealand responded to the pandemic in such an effective way, Wilson later stated that the development of Buy POE Currency was fully back on track. It is not clear whether this new delay will seriously affect the future of "Path of Exile" or whether it will have any impact on the upcoming "Path of Exile 2" or "Path of Exile".
