The Covid-19 pandemic, however, also appears to have impacted on productivity Grinding Gear Games e expansion 3.11 of the game, scheduled for the month of June, may see its arrival postponed. This was confirmed by the software house itself with a note on Official site.
“As many of you already know, we have completed 8 of the 13 weeks of this home development cycle and this means a great deal of time lost in team and face-to-face collaboration. Our team has worked hard to adapt to the new working situation, but there have certainly been difficulties in working in this way that have slowed down development slightly. Because of this, we have already internally postponed the launch of the expansion for a week compared to the initially scheduled date […]. We are currently planning to announce expansion 3.11 on June 2nd at 2 pm (PDT), in a nutshell in two weeks. This means that we are working on a launch date set at June 19th on PC and June 24th on console. However, it is extremely important to note that more than in the case of any other previous expansion, there is a high probability that this launch will be postponed. "
Grinding Gear Games said that given the delicate situation of the whole industry it is better to be as transparent as possible. Although no mention has been made of Path of Exile 2, it's easy to imagine how the work on the game sequel is also progressing slowly and the initial forecast of an exit by 2020 could be denied.
