The release of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition has been pushed back from September 18 to November 30.
The delay was announced on the game’s forum by Overhaul Games’ president Trent Oster, who said that new content and his team's quest to have the game live up to fan expectations were the primary reasons for the date change.
“Executing on our plan to make the best Baldur’s Gate possible and responding to that overwhelming feedback, we’ve added new characters, areas, and story, creating many new hours of gameplay,” he said.
“After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners, we've decided to ensure that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is the best possible product on launch. Thus, we have pushed back the release date of the game.”
Oster also thanked the “dozens of volunteers from all over the world” who had helped Overhaul “improve game play, squash bugs, and generally fine-tune the game”.
“To all who have pre-ordered, we ask for your patience as we move toward our final release date – and we will be working on something a little extra for you. To all who have volunteered, we thank you for your dedication and support,” he said.
