Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity set a high bar for classic-style RPGs when it released in 2015.Considering its warm reception, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that fans have been clamoring for another game in that universe. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire looks to be just as massive as its predecessor, but that level of ambition carries a price. Today, Obsidian announced that the sequel’s release is slipping from April to May, as the team works on polishing the game.
The delay puts its release at a little more than a month beyond what was previously announced. Deadfire was originally slated for an April 3 launch, but now it will be coming to PC, Mac, and Linux on May 8. Console versions will be coming later this year.
