Path of Exile’s sequel, Path of Exile 2 is among the many games which are delayed due to the ongoing pandemic situation. The devs are currently focused on rectifying the bugs which followed the 3.13 expansion of PoE and shifting their focus to their upcoming title is going to take time resulting in its delayed-release. Here’s everything you need to know.
Path of Exile 2
As we all know how this pandemic has disrupted many schedules for the release of new titles and unfortunately Path of Exile 2 stands among them. The game was expected to be released this year but due to unavoidable circumstances, the release date is further pushed. So, the sequel of the famous game Path of Exile, Path of Exile 2 won’t be releasing this year and is expected to arrive in 2022, according to Grinding Gear Games studio head Chris Wilson.
He said in an interview with PC Gamer- “I hate to blame Covid for stuff, but that is a big part of it at the moment. We have had difficulty hiring internationally because the borders to New Zealand are closed, so that has curtailed the exponential growth of our asset creation team a little bit.” He further added- “The progress of development hasn’t been as fast as we wanted, and so our goal is to bash as hard as we can during 2021 on Path Of Exile 2 stuff and see how much headway we make. Trying to get as much done as possible, and that’ll give us a better idea of a good release date we can estimate, which should be towards the end of the year.”
Path of Exile 2- Trailer
The official Path of Exile 2 trailer was released way back in 2019 featuring a new character selection mode and new content.
The sequel will be an expansion of the original PoE game with a new seven-act plat campaign. Similar to Overwatch 2, the content of PoE will be transferred to its sequel but the endgame will remain the same.
Path of Exile 2- Release Date
The official release date of Path of Exile 2 is yet to be announced but GGG head, Wilson confirmed that it is going to be released in 2022.
Path of Exile 2- Supported Platforms
With PoE being available to play on PS5 using backward compatibility mode, it won’t be a surprise if the sequel is released on the next-gen consoles. The devs are already working on bringing PoE to PS5, so we expect its sequel to be released on the same.
