Path of Exile PS4 Release Delayed
Grinding Gear Games has announced the PlayStation 4 version of Path of Exile has been pushed back. Originally scheduled for release in December 2018, the PlayStation 4 version will now be released some time in February 2019. Grinding Gear Games provided the following statement regarding the delay:
When we announced Path of Exile for PlayStation 4 earlier this month, we indicated we were aiming for a December release. Unfortunately, we have had to revise this to early February. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this causes, because we know there are many players looking forward to this release.
We underestimated the amount of work it would take to finish the certification process during the busy Christmas period. While we hope to have everything ready in January, we feel a lot more comfortable promising early February as a target release window. This will also give us time to work on game performance/frame rate, which we feel could be improved before release.
Again, we’re very sorry about this. We understand that many PlayStation users were keen to play Betrayal over Christmas and have been eagerly awaiting release date news. We promise that Path of Exile will be awesome on PlayStation 4 when it is released early next year.
Path of Exile is a free-to-play action RPG originally released for PC in 2013 and ported to Xbox One in 2017. Its newest expansion, Betrayal, is set to be released for PC on December 6, 2018, and for Xbox One in mid-December, and will be included in the PlayStation 4 version when it launches.
