Earlier this year, many Dungeons & Dragons fans were elated to hear that Baldur’s Gate was not only getting a graphic overhaul, new gameplay features and new character’s, but it would also be heading to all the popular OS platforms. In July pre-orders began for Windows, but Android and iOS were left waiting until its eventual release.
It appeared that all was well for the upcoming September 18th release date, until last Friday, when TrentOster updated the Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition forum stating:
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. Our plan is to release in November, 2012.
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.
It is always disheartening to hear a game getting delayed, it’s even worse when it’s a remake for a beloved game that’s being remade like Baldur’s Gate. This probably shouldn’t comes as a too much of a surprise for anyone looking forward to this title, it was an ambitious release date from the get go. I am, however, still looking forward it and hope that the extra development time just means there are fewer problems when it does reach our platform of choice.
