Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas is Grinding Gear’s most successful expansion
Grinding Gear Games announced today that Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas has already become its most successful expansion.
When the highly-anticipated expansion launched on PC last week, it reached 265,250 simultaneous players. According to Grinding Gear, it was the #4 most popular game on Steam at the time. Player numbers have been 11 percent higher than Path of Exile‘s previous highest launch, Delirium.
“Echoes of the Atlas has been Path of Exile‘s most successful expansion so far,” Chris Wilson, co-founder of Grinding Gear Games said. “We are so pleased to still be setting new player number records after over 30 quarterly league releases since 2013. It shows us that our development methodologies are evolving in the right direction as we work towards completing Path of Exile 2.”
Grinding Gear Games has released plenty of new content in recent months. The company offered three ‘epic’ in-game events in December. And another expansion, Blight, came out back in September 2019.
