Weird. Beamdog has pulled Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from the App Store and as a PC download via its site due to a “number of contractual issues," the studio confirmed in a message on the official Baldur’s Gate page. Work on the game’s Android port and the next patch for the game have also been put on hold.
The launch of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition has stalled out, too, following these issues.
Here’s the statement Overhaul and Beamdog president Trent Oster put out today:
We recently removed Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from sale on Beamdog and the Apple App Store. We’ve taken this step at our publishing partner’s request as we attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues.
Unfortunately, until this matter is resolved, we are unable to release the latest Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition patch or Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android.
This also prevents the launch of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition. I sincerely apologize to the series’ fans and promise we are working diligently to remedy the situation.
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition first appeared on iPad in December 2012. As of this moment, the Steam version of the game is still available to download.
We’ll let you know if any concrete intel on these issues pop up.
