Stellaris didn't take long to establish itself as a core game in Paradox Interactive's portfolio and, as it continues to receive both paid expansions and free patches, players are wondering what its 3.3 update release date might be.
Stellaris' 3.3 update is one of the game's post-Custodian initiative patches, which essentially saw the grand strategy game's development team split into two: one half handling expansion content, another focusing on releasing free patches every 3 months. This gives us a good sense of when its release date might occur.
After the Herbert patch landed in November, accompanying the game's Aquatic Species Pack, Stellaris' 3.3 Update is currently expected to launch at some point in February 2022. Although it doesn't have one attached to it yet, there's a good chance that it won't break tradition and be named after a popular sci-fi author later down the line.
Paradox Development Studio has confirmed that Stellaris 3.3 patch is currently aiming for a February 2022 release date, while also sharing a few details about its contents.
- Stellaris 3.3 Update release date: February 2022
The update will introduce the Unity rework that was originally revealed back in June 2021, although we'll have to wait a bit longer until specifics about its current form will be shared. The developer is also considering an open beta test prior to its proper launch.
Aside from that, it's probably safe to assume that we'll also get more bug fixes and small improvements. We'll keep you posted, as more information is sure to be shared over the coming months.
That's what we currently know about the Stellaris 3.3 update release date. If you're a medieval ruler that's somehow stumbled upon this article by accident, here's a portal to return back to your timeline while also learning about when Crusader Kings 3 patch 1.5 launches.
