Here’s a bummer to start your weekend with: Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition has seen a slight delay. In an open letter posted on the game’s official message board, Overhaul Games president Trent Oster says that the re-worked, HD version of the title will not hit in September as was planned. Instead, it’ll ship on November 30.
“After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners," Oster says in the post, “we’ve decided to ensure that Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is the best possible product on launch. Thus, we have pushed back the release date of the game." He adds that new characters and new story are being added, too.
We’ve spent some time with a pre-release iPad build of Enhanced Edition and shared some thoughts on its usability on our podcast last week. While we’re bummed this is happening, the silver lining is that Overhaul is obviously concerned with polish. That’s cool, and a win for everyone.
