Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition pulled from sale, BG2 remake on hold

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition

By on June 20, 2013 at 6:51 pm

Beamdog, who handled the recent remake of Baldur’s Gate, have pulled the game from sale pending “contractual issues” with their publisher that need to be resolved.

“We recently removed Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from sale on Beamdog and the Apple App Store,” reads the official site, which has been stripped back. “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.”

Beamdog describe themselves in the FAQ below as “extremely unhappy” with the situation and that “this has resulted in significant amounts of wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst the development team”.

Meanwhile if you’d like to get your Baldur’s Gate fix, may I recommend downloading the Baldur’s Gate Reloaded mod for Neverwinter Nights 2 from our file library. Jess has been playing it and making non-stop cries of delight.

still havent played these classics :(


It’s still available on steam at the moment.


Hmmm this is either a case of Beamdog not paying enough royalties as per contract or the licencee getting greedy and re-interpreting said contract to get more cash.


I’m betting it’s the Licensor (Beamdog is the Licensee…) trying to get more cash out of Beamdog…



Just get it on Steam chaps.


Will this impact steam?
