Overhaul has announced that Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition has suffered a delay and will not see a release tomorrow, September 18, as originally planned.

The game has now been pushed back until November to give the team more time to implement several fan requested features. “Thousands of you posted suggestions and requests on our forums. Dozens of volunteers from all over the world helped us improve gameplay, squash bugs, and generally fine-tune the game. Even more came to help work on translations from English to more than 16 other languages,” said Overhaul president Trent Oster.

“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 gameplay. Yet the suggestions, fixes, and translations continue, and more volunteers keep joining.”

“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.”

The game is in development for PC, Mac, iPad and Android.
