Escape from Tarkov Wipe Dates: When is the next wipe?

Escape from Tarkov is a first-person shooter video game being developed by Battlestate Games. The game is currently in the closed beta testing (CBT) stage and is under constant development. You can only download EFT on their official website and choose what edition you want to purchase. Escape From Tarkov wipes will usually occur when there are major updates made to the game, such as new mechanics being added or changes to existing ones, instances of bugs that require fixing, or other issues with any other aspects of gameplay that need addressing. 

What is an Escape From Tarkov wipe?

A ‘wipe’ will usually occur at the time of major updates in Escape From Tarkov, and players will usually find that all player progress is reset to zero following the release of the wipe.

Escape From Tarkov wipes all progress associated with your account in order to keep the game fair. This means that all character development, quest progress, stash, and hideout items are wiped clean. Following the wipe, you will usually be given your account’s starting items again, but this may vary depending on what updates have been implemented.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “wipe” in Tarkov, or if you’re new to the game and wondering why you’ve been restarted back to level 1 with no gear, don’t worry, it’s completely normal.

Here is also a guide on How Do You Play Escape From Tarkov? if you are new to the game.

How Often Do Tarkov Wipes Occur?

The game is under constant development, so it’s hard to say exactly when the next wipe will be. Although, we do know that we typically see Escape from Tarkov release a new server wipe every six months.

The last Escape from Tarkov wipe happened on June 29, 2022. The patch update was also released at that time.

Below, you can see a brief summary of when the game’s previous wipes occurred and how many days passed between each wipe.

When is the next Escape from Tarkov wipe?

The developers don’t reveal their plans for a wipe. They always keep it a secret and only announce it once the date’s getting close. But if we will be based on the past wipe that happened on June 29, 2022, and estimated the game wipes every 6 months, it seems that the next Escape from Tarkov wipe will happen in December 2022.
