Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pulled, BGII: EE On Hold


Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition has been removed from sale on both the Beamdog site and the Apple App Store. This action, according to a statement on the Baldur’s Gate website, was taken by Beamdog/Overhaul per a “publishing partner’s request as [the parties] attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues”.

As a result of this action, the game is no longer available to purchase through the Beamdog site, or the Apple App Store. Additionally, the upcoming patch that improves performance, updates the UI, adds German language support, and fixes and enhances over 135 gameplay issues is also on hold. This action also affects the planned Android version of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, which has been long-awaited since the announcement and release of the PC version.

Most notably, this action is also affecting the development and release of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, which Overhaul have been working on since wrapping up development on BG: EE.

There is no date yet when Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will be available again, with Beamdog stating that the game will only go back on sale once “all issues with our publishing partner have been resolved”. Thankfully, users who have already purchased Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition should still be able to dowload and play the game, according to the FAQ posted on the site.
