The developer has yet to commit to a fixed schedule for Victoria 3 updates, making it tricky to pinpoint an exact patch 1.3 release date prior to an official announcement.
Victoria 3 Patch 1.3 Release Date
The first major post-launch update went live two months after the game's launch, in December 2022. Patch 1.2 went live in mid-March 2023, after spending a while in open beta.
We currently expect to see the grand strategy game's next update arriving at some point in June or later, during the second half of 2023.

The above date remains, of course, pure speculation based on whe prior updates released until Paradox shares more details about 1.3's exact schedule.
Just like we can't say for sure when it launches, or if it will also first become available in open beta, Victoria 3 patch 1.3's features also remain a bit of a mystery at the moment.
Thankfully, a broader roadmap released closer to the game's launch outlines the developer's plans for the first couple of updates, so we can at least get a sense of what we could expect to see when it drops.
Priorities can, however, change, but it shouldn't be too long before developer diaries begin detailing just how Victoria 3's patch 1.3 release date will improve the grand strategy game.
We'll have to wait and see but, until then, you can make your playthroughs a bit more interesting with these console commands and cheats.
