While Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire had already been confirmed for Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch was missing from any official discussions, until now.
Paradox Arctic, an offshoot of Paradox Interactive, who previously converted Pillars of Eternity for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are picking up duties for the conversion of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire for the Nintendo Switch.
Now with Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and with our publishing partner, Versus Evil, we are not only bringing Pillars of Eternity back to the PS4 and Xbox One, but also to the Nintendo Switch. Bringing the Pillars brand to new and exciting platforms like the Switch is something that hits the Obsidian team’s inner child, since most of us have been playing on Nintendo hardware as far back as the 8-bit days. We simply can’t wait to see what our console fans think of Deadfire when it comes out.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire was successfully crowdfunded on Fig after hitting 400% funded when it reached $4,407,598 funding from 33,614 backers.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is due to release on Linux, Mac and PC on the 3rd April 2018 with the console versions following later in the year. Pillars of Eternity is available now on Linux, Mac and Windows PC while Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
