Even if yesterday we were unsure if there would be a wipe or not, it appears that we have waited long enough to see the actual outcome. Battlestate Games has just confirmed the kick-off of the installation of Escape From Tarkov’s patch 12.12, as servers went under maintenance. The wipe has also been approved so that everyone will start anew.
The server maintenance will last for approximately 4 hours, as confirmed by the developer on its official Twitter profile. So, it turns out that there is a wipe coming.
The installation of patch 0.12.12 has begun. There will be a wipe with the patch. The game will be completely unavailable for approximately 4 hours. Thank you for your understanding#EscapefromTarkov
