Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition was originally slated to come out on September 18, but the remake of the classic RPG has since been delayed until November 30, 2012 according to the game's lead developer Trent Oster.
The game was originally scheduled for an asynchronous release on the PC, Mac OSX, and iPad, but all three versions have been delayed for a simultaneous release.
The enhanced version of Baldur's Gate will contain all of the classic content along with new characters and a campaign unique to the revival. The original game was developed by BioWare for Interplay, and is set in the Forgotten Realms setting. It uses the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition ruleset and tells the story of a Bhaalspawn born on the Sword Coast who comes to discover his or her true heritage.
Trent Oster says that the game has been delayed in an effort to place quality above all else, instead of rushing the game out by its due date.
"Executing on our plan to make the best Baldur’s Gate possible and responding to that overwhelming feedback, we’ve added new characters, areas, and story, creating many new hours of game play. Yet the suggestions, fixes, and translations continue, and more volunteers keep joining," he wrote.
"After recently reviewing the game and then consulting with our partners, 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 plan is to release in November, 2012."
