Pillars Of Eternity delayed into 2015

2 min read


Since eXCheez has been asking me to cover the Pillars of Eternity news beat for a while, I thought that I’d oblige him today. With bad news. Heyo!

Much like several high profile 2014 release games and my plans to see my feet, Pillars Of Eternity has been pushed back to a 2015 release. Who’s to blame? Mostly you lot who backed the game during beta and offered several suggestions to improve the end product so that everyone can enjoy it. Thanks fer nothin’!

“Since the very beginning of this project we promised our fans and ourselves that we would release this game only when we knew it would be absolutely ready for the best experience possible,” Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said in an update.

We’re very close to that point, but not quite there yet. The feedback we have received through our playtest process has been invaluable to us. We are coming into the home stretch but are pushing the release out just a bit to make sure we honor that promise we made originally. Thanks for your patience and support, it will be worth the wait.

There’s no exact date for when in 2015 the game will be released, but it’s most likely just as well. There are a ton of games on the way, with most of the geniuses in the marketing department not realising that if they moved the games from October to November, they were just delaying the inevitable.

Still, January is a good month within which to launch a game, as that happens to be a rather barren period for new releases.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

      That’s more or less what I’ve done with the games I’ve backed on KS – back, then forget about it until it’s released hehe.

        I pretty much do the same.

        I backed Hyperlight Drifter too and haven’t checked on updates in ages.

    Thanks Darryn! 😀

    Bad news, and you still kept your word. 🙂

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Damn you eXCheez, it’s all your fault!

    That’s fine, D:OS and wasteland 2 will keep me busy until it’s released….
