Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Taken Down, BG II Remake On Hold

June 20, 2013 -

Beamdog and Overhaul Games have pulled their Baldur's Gate remake, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition from online stores. The game had been available for PC, Mac and iOS devices. Beamdog and Overhaul Games president Trent Oster issued a statement this morning on the web site for the game saying that the game was pulled due to ongoing legal issues related to the franchise. The latest patch and an Android version of the remake will not be released either.

Oster also said that these same contractual issues would prevent the release of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. Oster's full statement can be found below:

Dear Friends of Baldur's Gate,

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

I know there were some people that were a bit fed-up as they didn't think the remake added enough value.

Hmm... I've been on the verge of making the purchase for my iPad recently. I guess this makes the decision easier.

Well, that sucks. Baldur's Gate is such a great game and I was excited to see it getting updated.
