Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire – Delayed


Yup, the title reads right. Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, a new RPG to be released by the company Obsidian Entertainment has been delayed.

Delayed Release Date

Originally, it was supposed to be launched on April 3rd, however the developers over at Obsidian announced today in an e-mail that more time is needed to make sure everything is in great condition before the game gets released.

They have issued the following statement: “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.”, Obsidian said.

A delay of one month is not that bad, and Obsidian even promised they would make up for it with “plenty of Deadfire-related news and content” until the game is out.
