Grinding Gear Games is slated to have a big 2023 with its upcoming expansions to Path of Exile, as well as the return of its fan event in Auckland, New Zealand. The developer has detailed some of what - and when - players can expect to see the next few expansions as well as when the event will take place.

First things first: ExileCon 2023 will be taking place July 29th and 30th in Auckland, New Zealand where Grinding Gear Games is based. The first ExileCon took place in 2019 and saw GGG announce Path of Exile 2, and the developer is promising more updates on that front, as well as unveiling Expansion 3.22 and news on Path of Exile Mobile

Before that, though, there needs to be an expansion 3.21, right? Well, Grinding Gear Games has you covered. Path of Exile's next expansion should hit in April, meaning that the current Forbidden Sanctum challenge league will be running longer than normal. GGG explains that this is so that they can tinker with some ideas for the upcoming expansion, as well as have it hit alongside their timing plans for ExileCon.

"We are currently planning to launch our next Path of Exile expansion in early April. You may note that this means that The Forbidden Sanctum challenge league will be longer than normal. We are currently tinkering with a few ideas for some fun low-key things we can do in the final month before 3.21 launches and will let you know how those ideas shake out in the coming weeks. We have chosen this date so that we can make sure 3.21 gets all the development time it needs and that our release schedule for the year fits nicely alongside ExileCon and release dates of other games."

You can check out the full details on the Path of Exile website. We were able to go hands-on with Path of Exile 2 during ExileCon 2019 and at the time it already felt pretty great.
