The planned console versions of Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire have been fading from view ever since the flagship desktop version arrived in May and struggled to catch on. As time ticked by, the pencilled-in console release window of 2018 got smaller and smaller.
Then Microsoft bought developer Obsidian in November, throwing the whole thing into question. Would Pillars 2 still come out on console? Would it still come out on non-Microsoft consoles? We haven’t had a definitive answer until now.
The answer is yes, it will. Pillars of Eternity 2 will be released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in 2019. The ports also have a porter: Grip Digital, a specialist in these matters.
