Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (2)

It looks like there are some real issues with Beamdog’s Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition which has been pulled from their website and the Apple App store.

Beamdog are citing “contractual issues” as the problem but have not elaborated any further. It does sound quite serious though, they’ve gone as far as to say that these problems will prevent the launch of  the Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition.

If you own the game already then you have nothing to worry about and these “issues” will not prevent you from playing in any way.

The full statement in their site reads.

We recently removed Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from sale on Beamdog and the Apple App Store. We’ve taken this step at our publishing partner’s request as we attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues.

Unfortunately, until this matter is resolved, we are unable to release the latest Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition patch or Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android.

This also prevents the launch of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition. I sincerely apologize to the series’ fans and promise we are working diligently to remedy the situation.

Regards,
Trent Oster
President, Beamdog & Overhaul Games

Oddly enough the game can still be purchased on Steam as of writing. If you want a copy then I suggest you grab it now on Steam pronto.

    By contractual issues, they must mean payment? Doubt there can be any legal issues as they would have to be worked out before BG-EE development took place.
