Ships Ahoy - Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

The Baldur's Gate Website announces that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is now available for Windows PCs through the Beamdog Service. The game was to be released for all platforms today, but Trent Oster tweets that the iOS build is not approved, Android is trailing iOS, and the Mac OSX version is also delayed (thanks Eurogamer/Modojo). Here's word:

Overhaul Games is pleased to announce that Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition of PC has been released through Beamdog, and can be purchased here.

If you've already purchased Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, you can either download it through the Beamdog client, which can be found here, or through the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Installer which can be downloaded here.

Please note that due to extreme server load it may take some time to get your game, but we are working around the clock to alleviate the situation.

If enough people buy this, maybe we will finally get a Baldur's 3 or at least a similar game engine. Go f'ing buy it!
Those 2 things have NOTHING to do with each other. Interplay won't be seeing much if any of this money. And even if they did, their licenses from wizards won't let them do any more DnD games. And even if both of those factors weren't there, essentially interplay is a failed bankrupt publisher, its bloodless corpse being sucked dry by Caen bros who would end up keeping most of the money rather than spending it on game development (the same way they did while they were supposedly developing fallout online). That basic story can seen from financial statements from that time period.

If you were hoping bioware/ea would do something... well they did... dragon age 2. Feel free to buy the crap EA is pushing out. That kinda thing is the closest we will likely ever see from bioware/ea.

If all you want is some sorta top down turn based RPG that doesn't use the official DnD setup or the same story, then there's plenty of those in the works from indies, some already funded from kickstarter. If publishers were looking towards the money spent on the genre, those kickstarters would likely have far more impact and far more money, than this remake would.
