Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (2)

Last week Beamdog pulled the Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition while they resolved a “a number of contractual issues”. Beamdog’s Trent Ostner broke silence via RPS today to clarify the situation, which does’t look great for Beamdog.

The prognosis [for resuming work on Baldur's Gate] is mixed,” he said. “Best case, we can sort this out soon. Worst case, this could be in legal hell for a while. I like making games, but this contractual dispute bullshit keeps me up at night.”

Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is on indefinite hold, as is the current patch. Baldur’s Gate 3, we are still interested in the concept, but currently I’d say were very demoralized.”

With all work on hold for the Baldur’s Gate revamps, it doesn’t look good for studio who will be looking to get other projects underway while the mess is sorted out. It’s not known who is behind the “contractural issues” legal action.

Oddly enough, the  Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition is still available on steam for purchase.
