Beamdog abruptly removed Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
from sale on both the App Store and the company's own portal yesterday, as the studio works to "resolve a number of contractual issues." The removal, made at the request of an unnamed publishing partner, apparently doesn't extend to Steam
, where the remake of BioWare's RPG remains on sale.
"We are unable to discuss details of the complex legal matters surrounding this issue at this time," Beamdog said in an FAQ section related to the announcement. "Please be aware that we are extremely unhappy with the situation and are doing our best to work past it. We have put a lot of hard work into this series, and are eager for fans to see it."
Until those contractual issues are ironed out, the situation means the launch of Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition
is on hold. Hopefully things will be resolved with as little delay as possible, lest whatever's getting in the way desires the holy wrath of Boo.
