Happy birthday, Path of Exile, and grats on quadrupling your team

Path of Exile is celebrating its third birthday this week, and if the number of devs working on the game is any indication, the game has no intention of slowing down.

“Three years ago, on October 23, 2013, Path of Exile left Beta and was formally released,” Grinding Gear writes. “Since then, we’ve launched five expansions, fourteen challenge leagues and countless smaller updates. Path of Exile has been translated into Brazilian Portuguese, Thai, Russian, and both Traditional and Simplified Chinese. Over those years, Grinding Gear Games has quadrupled from 22 staff members to 88.”

The studio itself is approaching its 10th birthday; it’s planning a “Ten Years of Gears” party.

Path of Exile’s most recent update — last week, in fact — was a significant overhaul of the atlas system introduced in September’s Atlas of Worlds expansion. The game is also busy prepping for Halloween with seasonal bonus lockboxes.

Massively OP’s MJ Guthrie will be streaming the game tomorrow night at 9 p.m. EDT, so join us then!
