Next week, we're going to get our first look at Path of Exile 2 since ExileCon 2019. In case you needed a refresher of everything we knew about the game so far ... well, you could refer back to when Grinding Gear Games compiled them all early last year or look at the fresh and new forum post from earlier this week. Your choice.

The end of the post mentions a couple of additional details, though. The first was known, or at least implied: that PoE 2 will run in the same launcher and be playable alongside the base Path of Exile game, and all your microtransactions will carry over to the sequel.

And then there's this:

We are unlikely to start a Beta for Path of Exile 2 until 2022 at the earliest. In the meantime, we are continuing to release Path of Exile expansions on our regular three-month cycle.

That's a little bit of a bummer, especially for those of us who predicted that a PoE 2 beta would be offered this year. New Zealand was also one of the countries least-affected by COVID-19, so it's unlikely that's a significant reason for any development delays -- or maybe a beta in 2022 was the plan all along. In any case, we'll learn more next week.
