Diablo-esque free-to-play title Path of Exile was supposed to be launching on PlayStation 4 in December, but developer Grinding Gear Games has pushed the release back into 2019.
"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," reads a statement from the developer.
"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," the post continues. In other words, the project needed a little more time in the oven.
"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," the statement concludes.
If you were looking forward to getting your grind on over the holidays it's a bit of a kicker, but an extra layer of spit and shine will probably be worth the wait.
