Escape From Tarkov Wipe Date And Schedule

The Escape From Tarkov wipe date and schedule are kept relatively secret by Battlestate Games. We can roughly infer when the wipe will happen in Escape From Tarkov but you will never know for sure. However, we can look at when the past wipes have happened and take an educated guess as to when the next Escape From Tarkov wipe date and schedule will be.

What Is The Escape From Tarkov Wipe?

What is the Escape From Tarkov wipe

If you’re new to the game you might be wondering exactly what Escape From Tarkov wipes are. First and foremost, they are Battlestate Games’ way of balancing the economy and progression in Tarkov to keep the game fresh and stop players from being too strong.

When a wipe happens, all of your items, guns, armour, and money is - you guessed it - wiped from your account in the form of a hard reset. Your account then returns to its ‘original’ state in line with whichever of the Escape From Tarkov editions that you purchased. The wipes also act as a way of forcing players to not hoard their items and actually use them, as you never know when it will all be erased from the game. Additionally, any quest progress or trader reputations are gone, along with your level progress too.

With new wipes often comes new content, with guns, armour, and items being added to the game alongside various balance changes.

Escape From Tarkov Wipe Schedule

If looking at the number of days between each Escape From Tarkov wipe (discounting the first wipe), there is an average time of 151 days between each wipe. However, this is skewed down slightly due to some of the earlier Escape From Tarkov wipes, and has been trending more towards 200 days as of late.

 

In essence, there are usually two wipes per calendar year, with one roughly in the Winter and one in the Summer. There is speculation that when the game reaches its full release there will be no more wipes, but as it is still in beta the wipes will remain for the foreseeable future.

When Is The Next Escape From Tarkov Wipe Date?

The next Escape From Tarkov wipe date has officially been announced, and it is happening Wednesday 29 June, at roughly 4pm BST/8am PST. It was originally scheduled to be finished at 1pm BST/5am PST, but it has been extended by roughly three hours for technical reasons. This takes the current maintenance downtime to around eight hours.

Battlestate Games originally tweeted out that there would be a five hour maintenance downtime on that date that many were convinced was going to be the wipe, however they usually explicitly state when a wipe is happening and there was no information attached to that update.

However, a couple of hours later they did officially confirm that the patch would come with the all new Escape From Tarkov wipe, bringing a huge wave of excitement across the community. Alongside this new wipe arrives the 12.12.30 patch, which you can read all about in our Escape From Tarkov 12.12.30 patch notes guide.

A lot of players did think that the wipe has arrived a day early, due to a lot of teasers for the 30/06 date across the various pre wipe event tweets. Couple this with the popular meme that the wipe is coming next Thursday, and Battlestate had a lot of players fooled.

Before the latest Tarkov TV, some people were speculating that the wipe would be delayed until late summer/early autumn so that they could launch it in tandem with the Streets of Tarkov map. As we know now this is not the case, and they divulged that Streets is still a fair bit away due to issues on the optimisation side of things. We are however being treated to the Lighthouse map expansion with the new wipe, along with some new weapons and special items, so there is lots to look forward to despite the absence of Streets.

So, that wraps it up for all the information you’ll need about the Escape From Tarkov wipe date and schedule. If you’re coming into the game fresh with the new wipe, make sure to check out these seven Escape From Tarkov tips to give you a good head start.
