Coronavirus prevents players from getting POE 2 by the end of the year

If you are a loyal Path of Exile fan, the most exciting news in this period should be related to POE 2. At the last ExileCon, the developer Grinding Gear Games announced plans related to POE 2, and it is expected to provide beta beta versions for players by the end of 2020. Not only that, the game also plans to provide corresponding versions with the launch of PS 5 and Xbox X.

If you are still looking forward to getting the beta version of POE 2 at the end of this year, then you better change your mind and be prepared to find other alternative games, because you will most likely not get POE 2 as expected. Due to the global outbreak of coronavirus, POE Currency development of POE 2 was greatly affected and had to be postponed. Grinding Gear Games originally said that it would add a new seven-act story to the sequel to POE, but now the development team needs to focus more on developing the latest extension of POE: Delirium.

"Our initial estimate ended up being to start some early beta testing in late 2020," Grinding Gear Games’ co-founder Chris Wilson told MMOAH. "But we’re likely to revise that estimate as we approach it to be sure that things are ready enough for community feedback. Rushing against eachother won’t benefit anyone, the world thinks!"

The studio revealed the 1st game's next free expansion, Delirium, recently, this is the main reason for your expected delay. Outsourcing partners in China happen to be delayed with the coronavirus outbreak, causing a knock-on effect for Grinding Gear. To make sure Delirium wasn't affected, the studio made some changes for the Path of Exile 2 schedule so that it could put more and more people on Delirium.

It's another case on the coronavirus outbreak intersecting with gaming. Wilson explained the Chinese artists were advised to not return towards the office after Chinese New Year, citing concerns regarding the virus.

The bulk on the 80,000 cases with the cornavirus come in China and it has so far claimed around 3,000 lives. This has lead for the cancellation of any slew of events, like the Taipei Game Show, Overwatch League matches and also the Chinese League of Legends pro series. Outside of Asia, PUBG Corp has postpone an event in Germany, while publishers and developers are extracting of PAX East and GDC.

Path of Exile 2 still has no a release date, with Wilson saying the studio will "release it when it is ready." Path of Exile: Delirium new season is now live. If you want to Buy POE Orbs get a good start and save your time, you should buy some POE Currency and POE Items. I think MMOAH may meet your need of these resource. Google "POE Currency" and you will find the NO.1 result is MMOAH official site, visit and buy everything you need in Path of Exile.
