Grinding Gear Games has announced an announcement for their next Path of Exile 3.12 expansion, with that announcement set for September 1.

The expansion timeline was shared on their official forums over the weekend. Expansion 3.12 will actually be developed on a 13 week timeline as they explained,

“We normally operate on a 13 week schedule, allowing us to release four expansions a year in March, June, September and December. It took 14 weeks to develop Harvest due to the limitations of working from home and as we indicated in the post linked above, this meant we would need one of our expansions to be developed in just 12 weeks to make up for that lost time. Our intention was to develop our 3.12 expansion on this 12 week timeline but due to the ambitious scope of the league, we feel it is a lot safer to consume a 13th week. So while this isn't technically a deviation from our normal timeline, it's slightly later than we originally indicated.”

As for the dates, the announcement is set for September 1. The release date for Expansion 3.12 – the name of which is unknown at this time – will be September 18 for PC and September 23 for console. This means their current league, Harvest, will end on September 14 at 3p PDT. There are no end of league events between now and the launch of 3.12.

In case you missed it, you can catch up on what the team has planned for the remainder of 2020.
