Pillars of Eternity Delayed to 2015

Despite repeated claims from Obsidian that Pillars of Eternity would meet its Winter 2014 release window, I can't say I'm surprised to learn that the project has been delayed to early 2015. I've enjoyed my time with the backer beta, but there's still quite a lot of ironing out to do, and Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart seems to agree:

"Since the very beginning of this project we promised our fans and ourselves that we would release this game only when we knew it would be absolutely ready for the best experience possible. We're very close to that point, but not quite there yet. The feedback we have received through our playtest process has been invaluable to us. We are coming into the home stretch but are pushing the release out just a bit to make sure we honor that promise we made originally. Thanks for your patience and support, it will be worth the wait." Feargus Urquhart, CEO Obsidian.
