They delayed it due to release schedule conflicts from other publishers, they didn't want it to be overshadowed by big name IP. They had already dumped a lot of money into it and given Obsidian extra time so I don't really blame them exclusively for how the release turned out, Obsidian has talked about how they didn't really have a proper roadmap for the game and that it was a very troubled production. You can't keep throwing good money after bad.
