The next expansion will launch on January 15th on PC, while consoles will gain the next update on January 21st 2020. Previously the expansion was set to launch in December, but because Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed to that month, GGG decided to move the Path of Exile expansion launch to January 2021, so it wouldn’t put “players in a position of having to choose between these two games”.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about Path of Exile 2, which was announced at the end of 2019. While not separate game as the name suggests, but an expansion set to overhaul the base game, changing core systems and reworking mechanics adding a further seven acts. The beta was suppose to take place towards the end of 2020, but due to the pandemic put a spanner in the works for many development schedules. Maybe we’ll be hearing something soon, hopefully putting things on track for 2021.
