Pillars of Eternity Will Not Release in the Spring; a New Date Has Not Been Announced

on February 9, 2014 4:46 PM

Just like life not everything will go according to plan, game release dates included. Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity‘s release date has been delayed due the massive size of the project.

Project Lead Josh Sawyer told Eurogamer, that because of the crowd-funding campaign’s massive success, the game had to be extremely expanded after raising $3.9 million in October 2012.

It’s understandable that people don’t know this, but when you start a Kickstarter, once it goes live, you can’t change that [estimated release] date. You’re not allowed to change to that date. We got almost four-times as much money and that’s a much bigger game, and that doesn’t mean that immediately we just dump four-times as many people on it and it also gets done in April. There’s a lot more stuff to do.

Currently the game is more than fifty percent finished in the “alpha state” but a new release date will not be announced until the game’s completion. When it is completed the game will release  Steam Early Access first.
