Is there an upcoming Escape from Tarkov wipe? This has been a question on many players’ minds ever since the game skyrocketed in popularity in recent months. As it turns out, this is really more of a question of when the wipe is coming as opposed to if a wipe is coming. After all, the game will inevitably be reset at least once before it makes its full release. So when is the next Escape from Tarkov wipe scheduled? Read on to find out.
When is the next Escape from Tarkov wipe?
The Escape from Tarkov 2020 wipe date is right around the corner. The game is currently in the middle of a pre-wipe event, with the major 12.6 update planned to release sometime within the next week. By all accounts, players can expect the 2020 wipe date on or around June 1, 2020.
Fans who keep up on the details will know that the next server wipe was expected alongside the next major release. Previously, this information was revealed in a post made on the official Escape from Tarkov forums. At the time, the developers stated that a global wipe would not occur for the “next couple of months.” However, they also specified that the wipe “will be linked to storyline quests,” which suggests these quests will be somehow tied into player progression.
Effectively, this meant an Escape from Tarkov wipe wouldn’t occur any sooner than summer of 2020. Now that the release of update version 12.6 is imminent — and considering that the pre-wipe event has already kicked off — most players believe the wipe will occur at the start of June 2020.
Get ready, folks: The next Escape from Tarkov 2020 wipe is coming up soon. A global reset will occur when the game’s new storyline missions are released alongside update 12.6. Until then, we recommend making the most out of your time, as your progress will be wiped in a matter of days.
