Kotaku and Eurogamer are reporting that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has had its launch date pushed back. Originally slated to release on April 3, the PC version of the game will now reportedly release on May 8.
The console versions of the game published by THQ Nordic are expected at some point around the holiday season.
Here's a statement from the developer on the delay, from Eurogamer's report:
"We know you're as excited as we are about the upcoming launch of Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire," said Obsidian in a statement. "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 every inch of it 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."
It's been a surprisingly crowded first part of the year for RPGs, so we'll continue to work out those backlogs as we wait for the later release.
