Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Delayed, Will Release In May

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire was supposed to release next month but unfortunately, this isn’t the case anymore. Obsidian has announced today that the popular sequel will be delayed by a month so that they can add some finishing touches before its launch.

The game was initially set to release on April 3rd, however, it is being pushed back by a few weeks. Obsidian Entertainment announced:

“As you have probably guessed, Deadfire is a huge game—significantly larger than the original Pillars of Eternity. Obsidian has been working harder than Abydon himself to make every inch of it awesome, as well as incorporating all the great feedback we have been getting from everyone playing the Backer Beta”

“With this in mind, we are taking just a few extra weeks to polish and put those finishing touches on the game. Our new launch date will be Tuesday, May 8th, 2018.”

Undeniably, this isn’t too much of a delay if that means the game will be polished when it launches. After all, Obsidian has promised to make up for it by bringing more news and content to Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire over the next weeks.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire campaign on Fig has collected more than $4 million, making it one of the most successful crowdfunded titles on the platform. That will stretch the developers’ goals even more since Obsidian plans to create a bigger game, more reactive world, and a strong lineup of characters.

Its predecessor, Pillars Of Eternity is an RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Paradox Interactive. The game is a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale.
