Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, despite being a critical darling, has not sold up to Obsidian’s expectations, yet the project is still coming to console, with a surprise Switch release.
The game has always had a rough release window of 2018 to be ported on to console, but now the developer has come out and stated that the port will now drop in 2019. The recent purchase by Microsoft thrust the possibility of a port into doubt, but Obsidian has allayed these fears with a nugget of info at the end of its recent blog post:
“If you read our last update, we promised to have more information regarding Deadfire’s console release. As we stated, our partners at Grip Digital have been hard at work, and Deadfire will be releasing on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in 2019! We are pleased to also announce that the console edition will ship with all expansions, updates, and free DLC’s included at launch! We don’t have an exact date for you yet, but as soon as we have one, we will let you know!”
