Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear is Content Complete, Will Come Out "When It Is Done"

In their end of the year update blog post, the folks at Beamdog explained that the Siege of Dragonspear expansion/interquel for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is currently content complete and will be released in 2016. But as for when, that will be determined by the results of the expansion's QA phase:

(Content complete) means that everything that belongs in the game is in the game. Areas are finished, monsters are all in place, items have been crafted, characters stand where they're supposed to stand. All the quests and subquests are finalized and implemented. We decided that some of the older areas we reused from Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition could be improved, and so the artists repainted the city zones to make them sharper and more in line with the updated (but still classic) Siege of Dragonspear look.

We're obviously excited about reaching this point. It's great to see all the hard work of the last two years come to life on our monitors. Now we enter... the QA zone! *ominous music plays*

QA (quality assurance) is the process of making sure all the content works the way it's supposed to. We test out the game on multiple platforms over and over again to find any issues that need correcting before the game can launch. Our goal is to release a game that's fun, complete, and bug-free. The progress of our QA testing will drive the eventual release date in 2016.

A concept reiterated by Trent Oster, CEO of the company, on Twitter. In his words, "the game will say when it is done."
