Cyberpunk 2077 is likely to be one of the biggest game releases this year – to put it mildly – and when it does finally emerge from development, it’s likely to absorb the attention of consumers and media alike. So in response to the latest delay announced this week, it seems other developers are again scrambling to get out of Cyberpunk’s way, with Path of Exile moving an entire expansion to make way for the futuristic juggernaut.
While release dates often mysteriously change whenever a big game appears next to them, it’s rare to see a developer openly point to another game release as the reason for a delay. Such is the fear of Cyberpunk 2077, I suppose.
Despite the schedule change, Path of Exile players won’t be left without content over the Christmas break, as the development team is planning on running “at least one multi-week event (for example, Flashback)” over the holidays. When 3.13 does finally release, players can expect “everything that a large Path of Exile expansion needs, but no more”, as Covid-19 disruption has understandably prevented the development team from making anything too extravagant.
