Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition was recently pulled from stores following contractual issues faced by Beamdog. At the time, the studio did not dish out any details as to exactly what the issues were, only that it was with a publishing partner.
Today, Beamdog CEO Trent Oster reveals that it was Atari that had legal disputes with the studio. “At the request of Atari legal we removed the game from sale on Beamdog and the App stores,” Oster told Game Informer. “Atari is still selling the game through their channels. We’re trying to remedy the situation and I’m hopeful we can come to an arrangement.”
Unfortunately, Oster hasn’t divulged any further details about why Atari requested Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition to be pulled.
Despite legal problems that is causing a delay in the release of the latest patch as well as the sequel, Oster is optimistic that there will still be a Baldur’s Gate 3.
