Fans of Path of Exile who have been waiting for the PlayStation 4 release are going to be disappointed. Grinding Gear Games has announced that the PlayStation 4 version of Path of Exile will be delayed until February 2019 from its initial December release.
Here is the full message from Grinding Gear Games:
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.
Okay la, quite sad that they had to delay the launch. But on the upside, at least they were honest about it. Better a proper game is released than a subpar game that no one can enjoy. Path of Exile is currently out for Xbox One and PC.
