Pillars of Eternity II delayed to May 8th

For the last month or so, pretty much all we've seen of Pillars of Eternity II is beta previews, ship system previews, and the occasional inscrutable secret code tweet. At this point in the first game's development, we had seen multiple livestreams of non-beta content at a number of major industry events. The other day Josh Sawyer assured me that everything was fine, but still it seemed quite unusual for a game less than a month away from release. Which is why perhaps we shouldn't have been surprised when Obsidian announced today that Pillars II's release was being postponed by five weeks. It's now coming out on May 8th.

Greetings fans!

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!

According to Josh, the reason for the delay is "bugs". It should also give Obsidian time to do another beta update to test out Josh's latest wacky ideas, something that was looking increasingly unlikely with the original release date, although there's no official word on that yet.
