Obsidian Entertainment will surely (and temporarily) disappoint fans of Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The launch date for PoE2:D has been pushed back to May 8th from its original release date of April 3rd. According to the press announcement, the team is "taking just a few extra weeks to polish and put those finishing touches on the game."
Until May, Obsidian is promising that fans "can look forward to plenty of Deadfire-related news and content coming in the weeks and months ahead".
Our take: While disappointing, we'd rather see a month's delay to get all the virtual ducks in a row than to see the game pilloried at launch for having issues.
