Path of Exile: Betrayal Breaks Record With 188,970 Peak Concurrent Players At Launch

Posted time: Dec 11,2018


There was a lot of hype about the Grinding Gear Games' latest League for Path of Exile dubbed Betrayal. In addition to featuring all the new content, mechanics and rewards, Betrayal will also see past Leagues being reorganized and implemented into the core game. Ignoring the server issues a few hours after its launch on December 7th, Betrayal achieved a great success.

According to co-founder and managing director Chris Wilson on the official forums, Betrayal has got a peak concurrent player count of 188,970 users, among which 123,565 were from Steam itself. “This is 28% higher than our previous best-ever launch and is a record we’re planning to break again in the future,” said Wilson. He also pointed out that despite the initial server issues, Betrayal was one of the smoothest launches of the company ever.


The development team has not yet completed, although it will have a smaller team to view the title during the holidays.  “Over the coming week, we’ll prioritize post-launch issues as they come in, alongside the development of 3.6.0 which will be released in March. In New Zealand it’s common for people to take a few weeks of summer holiday around Christmas/New Year, so we’ll be running a skeleton crew for the end of December and early January.”

Wilson also thanked the development team for their hard work, especially considering the time frame that Betrayal created. “To the rest of the Grinding Gear Games team: Thank you for your hard work over the last few weeks. Betrayal was a massive expansion to create in such a short time frame. Your attention to detail and commitment to quality really show in the final product. It’s an honour working with you.”

In addition to the update 3.6.0, the developers are also working hard on the PS4 version of the Path of Exile. Slated to launch alongside Betrayal, the port will now be releasing in February 2019.
