Baldurs Gate Enhanced Edition Delayed

By Leigh Cobb15-09-2012

Bad news everyone! Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition has been delayed, pushed back into November, 2012. It had previously hoped to be released on the 18th September, here's what Trent Oster had to say:

"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 plan is to release in November, 2012."

This seems fair enough, we've waited this long and I'm just glad it's coming at all. Not everyone on the official post seems happy however. Here are some choice comments:

'Vonbek777' is more than a little annoyed, "Wow, seriously you waited this long to announce something you had to be aware of before now. A little more communication would better build the bridges of trust with the community" taking this delay as a personal insult.

'cespenar' writes, "The game is already done. Everything you had to do was to tweak it a little bit. I don't get this delay. I hope I will have some free DLC for this. PS. Don't even try to make BG3" proving the needy greed of demanding gamers everywhere.

'ZelgadisGW' however is on the verge of a mental breakdown, "I find this disturbing, especially due to my impatience. It really takes some guts to inform us about delay 4 days before original ship date. I'm dissapointed and annoyed at the moment."

I'm sure we can all agree that the game will eventually be worth it in the end, when it does finally release. Are you as understanding as me or as appalled as the above people? Leave a comment below.

People nowadays feel entitled to everything - products have to be 'good', released in a blink of an eye, cheap even if it is a gargantuan project, durable and easy....They do the PC community no favours of acting like this. Good to see that many others in the comments took it in a more mature way.
