Patch 6.3 Gods Revel, Lands Tremble will launch next year. Specifically, game director Yoshida Naoki stated in a live letter that the patch will arrive on January 10. Fans have previously drilled Yoshida to release on January 3, but it looks like this wasn’t possible.

Patch 6.2 Buried Memory released a few months back at the end of August. Sticking with the four-month release cycle, this would have placed Patch 6.3 right in the middle of the holiday week, which is why there is a slight delay.
