Well, to be honest, I’ve been expecting this since Katrina’s announcement. Just trying to figure out whether or not it’s legit.

Nothing on the official twitter feeds yet, but the Eurogamer article has quotes it's attributing to Obsidian.  They're a reputable enough publication not to have just made it up.  Could be a case where they ran something before they were "supposed to," though. 

 

That said, I don't really see how the departure of 1 producer (whose portfolio, IIRC, included managing the art team and backer-related stuff) has much to do with the overall project schedule.  I doubt this kind of staffing change would even have been noticed by fans had she not also picked up a public-facing role in the various update videos.

Kotaku just put up an article as well:

 

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has been delayed until May 8

"Incorporate feedback from the beta" makes me think they are giving us another beta update in order to gather said feedback (just because they would have already gathered all the feedback from the last version, I would have thought).

I, for one, do not mind. I would rather Obsidian took their time rather than release something shoddy.

Josh talked about been deep in bug fixing a few days ago and I had a hunch the game was going to be delayed after I read that.

Also, the lack of beta 4 when they were making major changes here and there always looked risky to me.

Also, yeah! Now I have enough time to finish the games I started since January I haven't finished yet before I switch to other game after a few weeks...>.> I have a problem.

You gotta do what you gotta do. One month isn't a huge amount of time, but likely time enough to square away some nagging issues with balance and bugs. If that means getting another Beta out to field player feedback great, but if not I'm fine with them just spending the time doing things internally and just providing us with some streams.

Hey.  It's not all bad.  I can't be the only pillars fan that embarrassingly hasn't finished the original yet....

It will be ready when it's ready. I want to play it for the first time when it's ready. I'm totally OK with Obsidian taking as much time as they need to make it ready.

Eh, no point in lamenting the inevitable. But what about a beta update? Seriously, Obsidian, a definitive statement is overdue.

Well, I am going to be flying out as of May 1 so I may not get to play it for another year or so now, but at least I can look forward a fully patched and stable experience when I get to it
