Grinding Gear Games announced a couple months back that Path of Exile would be heading to PS4 in December. However, the developers recently announced that the port has been delayed, and will be pushed back to February instead.
In an announcement post on the game’s official forums, they stated that they had underestimated the amount of work required to finish the game’s certification process before the planned 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.’
It’s definitely disappointing news for sure, especially for fans who were looking to dive into the game over the holidays. Still, the delay isn’t terribly long with just two more months to go.
Path of Exile is already available on PC via Steam and Xbox One, and will be coming to PS4 some time in February 2019.
