Bad news for fans of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition as Beamdog, the game’s distributor, have removed it from sale on their own website along with the Apple App store naming contractual issues. The game will not be getting an upcoming patch with both the Android version of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and a planned version of Baldur’s Gate II both being put on hold.
This issue does not affect those who have already downloaded the game so you can keep your copy without worrying whether this turn of events would render it unplayable. Beamdog said: “If you have already purchased Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition from Beamdog or the Apple App Store, you can still download and play your game.”
The president of Beamdog, Trent Oster, posted a letter on the website of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, where he addressed the issue. You can read the letter below:
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.
President, Beamdog & Overhaul Games
This situation sucks and hopefully it will be resolved soon as Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is a great game and one I’d definitely recommend. For more information there is a FAQ that addresses all the major issues here.
