The many PC gamers that have been eagerly awaiting the release of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will have to wait a little longer. Previously, developers Beamdog and Overhaul Games had announced that the graphical remake of both entries in BioWare's classic fantasy RPG series would be released next week, on September 18th.
However, in a post on the game's official message board on Friday, Beamdog's Trent Oster revealed that the game will now be delayed until sometime in November. He stated that the team has received help from "dozens of volunteers" to help improve and test the game, and even to translate it into other languages. He added:
Executing on our plan to make the best Baldur’s Gate possible and responding to that overwhelming feedback, we’ve added new characters, areas, and story, creating many new hours of game play. Yet the suggestions, fixes, and translations continue, and more volunteers keep joining. After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners, we've decided to ensure that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is the best possible product on launch.
The hope is that the release of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will be popular enough so that Beamdog can launch a full fledged sequel, Baldur's Gate III, at some point.
