Even though Josh Sawyer has been dropping hints about it since December 2015 and Feargus Urquhart outright revealed that it was in development back in May, Obsidian have pretended that the existence of Pillars of Eternity 2 is a big secret. Now it looks like they might be ready to drop the charade. Today, their official website began redirecting to a teaser page featuring an obviously Eder-ish symbol and quote. See the page's URL? That's 'LA' for Louisiana, as in Project Louisiana, which is also the name of a mysterious board they opened on their forums today. But we on the Codex know the truth. Here's the image on the teaser page:
Vailian alphabet Josh Sawyer posted on Twitter and Instagram earlier this month. But wait, there's more! A clever user on the Obsidian forums dug into the teaser page's innards and found an additional seven symbols, presumably timed to be revealed over the next week. These symbols too are letters, some of which are from the Engwithan and Aumaua alphabets posted by Josh last year.
Together, these letters look like they're meant to spell DEADFIRE, as in the Deadfire Archipelago, the hazardous island region to the south of the Dyrwood that has been strongly hinted to be the setting for Pillars of Eternity 2 over the past few months. It looks like we're bound for a nautical adventure. Perhaps we'll learn more in today's Pillars of Eternity director's commentary stream, and if not today, then in a week for sure.
