Larian have pushed back the release of their crowdfunded turn-based RPG Divinity: Original Sin from this Fall to February 2014. They've even given us the exact release date - February 28, despite Swen Vincke's recent announcement that he'd never "commit to a release date" until his games are 100% ready to ship.
This is taking us more time than we originally thought, and so, rather than cancelling a feature or a goal, we decided to move the release of Divinity: Original Sin from this fall (as originally announced) to this winter, specifically to February 28th 2014.
We realize this may be disappointing for some people who had hoped the game would still come out this year, but really, we think you'll have a much better RPG experience when everything we wanted to put in, is actually going to be in.
For backers that have Alpha access, expect to have the rough and rugged version of Original Sin by November. Beta should be your New Year's present in January!
What are they thinking?
For those interested in the details of the how and why, check out Swen's brand new blog entry, in which he explains his thoughts on postponing the release of Divinity: Original Sin.
Apparently it's a pretty risky decision for Larian, according to the above mentioned blog post:
Good luck, Swen; it looks like you'll need it.
