Path of Exile 2 will be released in 2020, but developers plan

  • Grind Gear Games, the developer of Path of Exile, announced the upcoming game title sequel at ExileCon in November 2019. Despite the studio's work on Path of Exile 2, it still plans to launch four extensions for the original POE in 2020. The studio also confirmed that Path of Exile 2 will not be released in 2020, but a public beta may be released later this year.

    In Grind Gear's 2020 roadmap, developers detail their Path of Exile plan and some changes regarding POE Currency. The regular quarterly plan for the extended version (3.10-3.13) will remain the same, and the first plan may be announced at the end of February. Depending on holidays/events and the beta period for larger content releases, release times may vary by a week or two.

    Development of patch 4.0.0 (also known as Path of Exile 2) is continuing as the team is working on what is not shown in the ExileCon Act One demo. The next time the studio presents more information about Path of Exile 2, they plan to prepare new content and features for it. The date given by the developer for more detailed information about PoE 2 is expected to be around E3 in mid-2020.

    The public beta plan remains unchanged and is scheduled for release later this year. As the sequel work continues, they say that the date of the test "depends heavily on whether they can expand the team" to complete the core mechanics, systems and actions.

    The increase in headcount may also affect Grind Gears' console team because they plan to strengthen this season. Developers point out that as the team grows, the latest features will be developed and deployed to your console platform faster. Of course, if players want cheap and high-quality POE Items, I recommend buying from MMOAH. Their website has become an expert of this type and a website I trust.
