Obsidian Entertainment, the name behind many RPG games has recently announced that their upcoming title, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire would be released on May 8th. That means the game was delayed for a month instead of being released on April 3rd. As a person who thinks that waiting is always better if we get a better game, I think this was a good decision. Here is the official statement fellas:
We know you’re as excited as we are about the upcoming launch of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. 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 sure every inch of it is 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 8, 2018. To tide you over until then, you can look forward to plenty of Deadfire-related news and content coming in the weeks and months.
See you all soon in the Deadfire!
Stay tuned for more!
