The Ancestor league will end soon and you may be wondering what will happen when it does.
Trial of the Ancestors won’t be going core in 3.23, so here's what you can expect when the Ancestor league ends on PC at Dec 05, 2023 1:00 PM (PST).

The details of the December expansion will be revealed on November 30th at 12:30PM (PST) at twitch.tv/pathofexile!
This livestream will contain announcements for both Path of Exile 1 and 2. The Path of Exile 1 section will cover the new challenge league and other content in the December expansion. Following this GGG will answer your burning questions in a live Q&A session with ZiggyD.

The end date of PoE Crucible league is August 16, 2023. GGG has seen a lot of people asking when PoE 3.22 expansion will launch. It's currently looking like it will launch on August 18th (PDT). This isn't fully locked in yet. However, GGG will confirm its launch date at ExileCon in just a few weeks.
GGG has also noted that quite a few people have asked whether or not PoE will be hosting end-of league-events before Crucible ends. GGG is currently all-hands-on-deck working on ExileCon, Path of Exile 2 and the 3.22 expansion so GGG isn't able to host any events this time around.
|August 16, 2023||PoE Crucible 3.21 league will end.|
Crucible will not be going core, but there are components of it that we really like that we may find a way to bring back in future expansions.
We loved watching everyone develop their Crucible trees to create unique builds utilising all the different Crucible skills available, so all your items with Crucible trees will move with you to Standard. However, the "Totems Explode on Death" Crucible Skill will likely be adjusted when that happens.
When the current league ends in a few weeks, all your existing Geodes, Remnants and Magmatic Ores will be deleted. If you have any Crucible challenges to complete, you still have some time to do so!
Thanks to everyone who got a chance to play Crucible!
The End date of PoE Sanctum is April 4, 2023. The release date of PoE 3.21 is about April 7, 2023. GGG is currently planning to launch the Path of Exile 3.21 expansion in early April. You may note that this means that The Forbidden Sanctum challenge league will be longer than normal. GGG is currently tinkering with a few ideas for some fun low-key things GGG can do in the final month before the 3.21 launches and will let you know how those ideas shake out in the coming weeks.
|April 4, 2023||
We are extending the Sanctum league until April 4. Sanctum has been a really popular league, and we're happy to run it for a bit longer so that you can keep perfecting your builds and finish your challenges.
While Sanctum won't be going core in the next expansion, we do really like this mechanic and the way it challenges Path of Exile players. We loved watching your Sanctum runs and the best relics you found. We definitely want to find a way to integrate it into Path of Exile.
There are a number of improvements we need to make to Sanctum before it can have a permanent place in Path of Exile. It needs a general rebalance, could benefit from more content, and needs to be integrated into your gameplay loop in a way that lets players specialise in it if they want to, but doesn't force it on players who prefer the base game. We'd also need to work out how Relics would work.
We're working on a lot of stuff for 3.21 at the moment so we haven't included the Sanctum rework in its scope. But it's hopefully something we can look forward to in the coming leagues.
When the current league ends in early April, all of your existing relics and invocations will be deleted. If you have any Sanctum challenges to complete, you still have several weeks to do so.
Thanks to everyone who is enjoying Sanctum!
The end date of PoE 3.19(Path of Exile: Lake of Kalandra) is December 6, 2022. The release date of PoE 3.20 is December 9, 2022. GGG has been looking at its upcoming schedule for the next year and has decided to move the 3.20 expansion launch date back from late November to early December.
This date works a lot better for alignment with the holiday period. Previous December launches have shown that launches roughly two weeks before Christmas allows players the freest time to play the league during the holiday season. In addition, this date is well clear of any holiday time that our developers are taking.

For now, the Lake will not become a part of the core game. When the league ends, all your existing Mirrored Tablets will be deleted, so if you have some stocked, now is a good time to use them.
While GGG may bring the Lake of Kalandra mechanic back in some form in the future, GGG doesn't have any plans can announce at the moment.
The Sentinel 3.18 League ends on PC and Mac on Tuesday August 16th. On consoles, the Sentinel League will end when the new 3.19 League goes live for consoles on August 24th PDT.
|PC and Mac||August 16, 2022|
|Console(Xbox and PlayStation)||August 24, 2022|
Path of Exile 3.19 league will launch on August 19th (PDT) for PC and Mac, and on August 24th for Xbox and PlayStation.
With the Sentinel League ending soon, you may be wondering whether this mechanic becomes a part of Path of Exile's core game.
The answer is no, for now. The league would take some changes before it would be appropriate to become a core Path of Exile mechanic, and while this is something we're interested in looking into in the future, it's not the time now.
When the Sentinel League ends in a few weeks, all of your existing Power Cores and Sentinels will be deleted.
Recombinators won't drop anymore, but the existing ones will continue to work in Standard and will become progressively more scarce as they are consumed. We know that you really enjoyed the crafting options provided by Recombinators, and we are looking for a way to bring them back in the future. If and when we do so, existing Recombinators will likely change their function to work however the new ones function. We'll signal this in the news beforehand so that you can make sure to consume existing ones if you prefer how they used to work.
In the meantime, you still have some time left to complete your unfinished challenges in the league before we say goodbye to the Sentinels.
Path of Exile always has a thirteen weeks cycle for every league.

The release date of PoE 3.17(Path of Exile: Siege of the Atlas) is February 4, 2022.
The short answer is no. Scourge will not become a core mechanic in PoE 3.17. It may become a core mechanic in the future.
In case you have unfinished challenges in this league, there are still a few weeks left to complete them before we say goodbye to The Last to Die and send the Scourge back to where they came from.
