In a forum post today, Overhaul Games announced that they have decided to push back the prospective launch date for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. The new release date is now set for later in 2012 on November 30.
"After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners," the post reads, "we've decided to ensure that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is the best possible product on launch. Thus, we have pushed back the release date of the game. Our release date is now November 30th, 2012."
It's a pretty last-minute decision seeing as how the game was originally scheduled to release in just four days on September 18. Then again, some fans are speculating that it could be a strategic decision to avoid launching in direct competition with Borderlands 2 and Torchlight 2. Which makes a certain amount of sense. There's no point in deliberately launching right in the same time frame as two games that compete for the same hardcore gamer mindshare.
