Path of Exile studio Grinding Gear Games is already hard at work shoring up the remaining issues in the Blight league launch. But what about after that? And after that? The company’s latest post tackles just that question with a comforting preview of what’s to come and when.
Following the 3.9.0 release, we’ll see expansion drops in March, June, and September of 2020, “and so on, with new expansions every 13 weeks until 4.0.0 is ready.”
“It’s important to understand that due to its scope, 4.0.0 is likely at least a year away from full release. Despite it being quite far from completion, we will both announce it and have a playable demo at ExileCon this year. In addition to the big 4.0.0 announcement, we’ll also announce the 3.9.0 expansion and its challenge league at ExileCon, which is around three weeks before they launch. We expect to have this content playable on the demo machines at the event as well.”
Wouldn’t it be awesome if all studios did this?
