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 was initially expected to launch at some point in February 2022.
Paradox Development Studio shared a few details about its content before later confirming that Stellaris 3.3 patch, called Libra, is aiming for a February 23 release date.

Aside from that, we're also getting a number of different bug fixes and balance changes, including AI that's more competent at specializing its planets and a bigger cooldown before edicts can be disabled.
