Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Summary
The ultimate PC RPG returns, but is it too little too late for Baldur’s Gate?
The 'contractual issues' between Overhaul Games and Atari have been slain by a mighty isometric RPG party of lawyers, and so Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is available at your local merchants "once again."
This is great news for owners of the HD remake eagerly awaiting the "major" patch Overhaul have been working on. The team will also have "exciting news" for BG2 soon.
Developer Beamdog still wants to pursue the concept of Baldur's Gate III, although the studio right is "very demoralized." Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is still being kept from online stores over legal wrangling.

Beamdog's HD remake of the classic RPG Baldur's Gate has been pulled from sale at their "publishing partner's request" as they sort through "a number of contractual issues" plaguing the studio.
