According to the official Phasmophobia Roadmap, Update v0.9 is set to release sometime in Q1 2023. Phasmophobia's developers have stated that the game's progression reset will come with the next major update, update 9.0. Update 9.0, according to the roadmap, is slated for release in Q1 2023. Q1 starts on 1 January and ends 31 March, so it's likely that we will receive the update in the next month or so if developers stick to their published roadmap.

Depending on how much you level up your character before the wipe, you'll get a special badge with unique material and color. It's unknown whether Kinetic Games will immediately release the prestige badges in the new update, or if they're coming in the future.

While we don't have an official release date from Kinetic Games yet for the Phasmophobia progression reset update, we'll probably hear one from developers soon, especially since they've just recently provided us with some interesting sneak peeks about the upcoming changes. It's unlikely that developers would release a total progression wipe without warning players a few days in advance to give them a little bit of time to prepare.

Phasmophobia is in Early Access, so the game frequently sees changes - such as new difficulty levels - and it's possible that this update might not come as soon as players hope. In any event, we'll be here to update you on the Phasmophobia progression wipe so you can know when it is and prepare yourself for the changes that are just over the horizon.
