Path of Exile: Delirium Console LaunchIn the past, we've typically launched new expansions on console on the Monday following the PC's weekend release. Our plans for launching Path of Exile: Delirium on console are slightly different than usual so we want to outline what to expect and why this is happening.
Typically our console launch happens on the Monday following PC's Friday release. We are planning to launch Delirium on Wednesday March 18th (PST).
There are several reasons for this. A slightly later launch on console allows us to get as much stability and polish into the console release as possible and we can include more of the hotfixes that may have been introduced to the PC version within that time.
This launch date also improves the safety of our console launch and minimises the possibility of not being able to make it through the certification process in time.
By releasing on Wednesday, we'll have enough time to submit an update should one be needed prior to the weekend for any other immediate issues that may need to be addressed.
We understand that this isn't ideal for players who are eager to play the expansion as soon as possible. We would love to be able to release on all platforms simultaneously but technical restraints make that impossible at this current time. We expect that the improvements to the console launch as a result of us gaining a few days will make the wait worthwhile.
We expect that Path of Exile: Delirium will launch on Wednesday, March 18th at 3:00pm PST.
