Pillars of Eternity Delayed Into 2015, Obsidian Incorporating “As Much Feedback as Possible”
The crowd-funded RPG is among many projects facing a delay.
Obsidian Entertainment’s RPG Pillars of Eternity, which was “100 percent” sure to release on PC in 2014 has been delayed till 2015.
“To incorporate as much feedback as possible, polish every nook and cranny of the game, and make sure we don’t ship a buggy game, Obsidian has decided to push the game’s release into early next year. We are going to use the extra time to make Eternity shine for our backers, and a game that we were proud to call our own and would live up to your expectations.”
Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart further clarified that, “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. 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.”
Pillars of Eternity is famous for being one of the most successful gaming Kickstarters of all time, garnering almost $4 million by mid-October 2012. The game set to come out earlier this year but was delayed once. What are your thoughts on this other delay? Let us know below.
