The Path of Exile Scourge League has been live for a little over 11 weeks, which means players will likely start asking the question 'How much longer is scourge league?'. That's because typically the Path of Exile challenge leagues are released on a fairly regular 13-week cycle. With all this in mind, keep reading, we'll explain everything you need to know on when the current Scourge League ends and everything else you need to know.

Path of Exile Scourge League Extended

Shortly before the end of 2021 the community team from Grinding Gear Games popped on the forums to confirm a few details about what to expect in early 2022.

The first major detail was that the dev team was working towards the launch of the PoE 3.17 Expansion, which was penciled in for "early February". This was a slight delay on the original promise to bring 3.17 in January 2022. This wasn't a result of any issues with th game, but rather the developer opting to push back the release so they could give staff a well-earned break before the year ahead.

The knock-on effect of this delay means that the Scourge League would also be extended by at least two weeks.

When Does Path of Exile Scourge League End?

Update: The Scourge League ends on PC on Tuesday February 1st at 1pm (PST). On consoles, the Scourge League will end when the Siege of the Atlas expansion goes live for console on February 9th (PST)

As we touched on before, each Path of Exile challenge league will normally aim for a 13 week cycle. That being said, some leagues have run well past the normal 13 weeks. For instance, you can see the exact start and end dates for past seasons just below:

PoE Expansion Release Date End Date Length
Scourge league22 October, 20211 February, 20223 months, 9 days
Expedition league23 July, 202118 October, 20212 months, 26 days
Ultimatum league16 April, 202119 July, 20213 months, 4 days
Ritual league15 January, 202112 April, 20212 months, 29 days
Heist league18 September, 202011 January, 20213 months, 25 days

If we were to assume that the current season lasted for exactly 13 weeks, it would end on January 20, 2022. However, as the dates above show, the league always ends on a Monday. So January 24, 2022 seems more likely.

However, we also know from the developers that PoE Scourge League has been extended by 2 weeks. As such we think it's possible that the PoE Scourge League ends on February 7, 2022.

All this means that if you have any unfinished challenges, there are still a few weeks left to complete them before we say goodbye to the Scourge.
