Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Delayed By Two Months

I can see why they might need a bit more time.

Overhaul Games have announced that it is delaying the release of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition from 18th September to 30th November 2012. The developer says if you already pre-ordered the game you will get something extra for having to wait longer.

From Overhaul Games president Trent Oster: “Dear Friends of Baldur’s Gate, When we first announced Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition,

You set fire to our servers and we were overwhelmed by the huge wave of support from the fans of the original game.

Once the fires had subsided, thousands of you posted suggestions and requests on our forums. Dozens of volunteers from all over the world helped us improve game play, squash bugs, and generally fine-tune the game. Even more came to help work on translations from English to more than 16 other languages.

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. Thus, we have pushed back the release date of the game. Our release date is now November 30th, 2012.

To all who have pre-ordered, we ask for your patience as we move toward our final release date — and we will be working on something a little extra for you. To all who have volunteered, we thank you for your dedication and support.”

So fans of the Baldur Gate are going to wait a bit longer for the official HD remake of the game. I am sure it will be worth the wait but you can be sure that some will bitch about how the original is better etc. My response is, it’s the same game with a few new features, so surely its better than the orignal game?
