Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire official artwork and logo

After receiving 400% of it's initial crowdfunding goal, the long-awaited Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire was supposed to arrive this April 3rd. Unfortunately, or rather fortunately depending on who you ask, the release has been delayed by an entire month in order to ensure that everything is polished up and as ready as it can possibly be.

Besides putting the finishing touches on what appears to be an absolutely gigantic world, Obsidian has also announced that they will be incorporating a significant amount feedback from the Backer Beta. As such, while it definitely sucks having to wait for another month, I don't see much of a reason to be negative about this delay. After all, it's better for Pillars of Eternity 2 to be slightly late and highly enjoyable, rather than join the AAA club with the usually disastrous launches followed by weeks of frantic patching.

Barring any further delays, you can expect Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire to arrive this May 8th. To tide you over until then, you can look forward to plenty of Deadfire-related news and developer blogs over at the official website. As for the console versions, no details have been given just yet, but it seems that the plan is still to have Pillars of Eternity 2 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch at some point towards the end of 2018.

As a final note, I'll leave you with one of the most recent gameplay trailers. It's slightly outdated at this point, but it should still give you a good idea of what to expect from Pillars of Eternity 2. Enjoy!
