Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition pulled from App Store and developer website
Thanks to some legal hijinks going on behind the scenes at developer Beamdog, the remastered Sword Coast has been closed off to the public indefinitely. That is to say, the developer has been forced to remove Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from both the App Store and its website.
In the process, Beamdog’s current Baldur-related plans have been stalled, as the message posted on the Baldur's Gate website by bossman Trent Oster reveals. Here’s what he had to say, in its entirety…
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.
The contractual monkeyshine presently affecting Beamdog and Baldur’s Gate will have no effect on those who already own BG: Enhanced Edition. Sadly, the developer was unable to provide an estimate as for when the matter will be resolved.
