Path Of Exile 3-17 Delay

With 2021 coming to a close and the expected launch date for Path of Exile’s next expansion creeping up on us, Grinding Gear Games has decided to offer players an updated timeline. By now, it should come as no surprise when a game suffers a small delay. It’s just the way things are. so it’s not too shocking that the 3.17 expansion would be pushed back. As things stand now, GGG expects to launch the expansion in early February. That said, it’s not set in stone, and exact dates will be provided at a later time.

What they do know is that there is “at least” a two-week delay in the schedule. This means that players have at least two weeks to continue playing Scourge League. If you’re wondering why we’re not getting more exact dates, the company is taking things like holiday breaks into account and wants to give everyone time to actually relax and do things that people should do during the holidays.

For those of you that have been wondering about the upcoming “Hard Mode”, testing was originally planned to take place prior to 3.17’s launch. However, as the expansion has received priority, it will now take place sometime after so you’ll just need to keep an eye out for that.

Aside from that, GGG reminds players that if they want something other than Scourge to do while waiting for the expansion, the Atlas Invasion event is currently running and a Delirium Everywhere event will happen this week – along with the obligatory Twitch Drops.
