Oh hey, remember yesterday when I blurted out that I haven’t played System Shock? I haven’t played Pillars of Eternity either, even though I backed it on Kickstarter. I haven’t played anything, apparently. I should just quit my job, move to some windswept crag, and live out my years in a penitent hessian sack.
Anyway, Pillars of Eternity 2 is in the works.
Talking to GamePressure about the company’s crowdfunding strategies, Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart admitted that, okay, yes, “Obviously, as you’ve probably guessed, we’re starting to move forward on [Pillars of] Eternity II. That is probably something that we want to look at [in terms of crowdfunding]. I think people felt like we delivered on our promise, and then that felt like we could go with Eternity II and people would support us again, because they trust us.”
He also added that “Eternity II is not announced, [but] it seems silly for me not to acknowledge it, though. If someone asks: ‘Are you working on it?’, I respond: ‘Well, wouldn’t you work on it?’. So then they say: ‘So you must be working on it’, and then I’m like: ‘Well, yeah’.”
So… yeah? Yeah.
Maybe by the time it launches, I’ll have played the first one. And System Shock. And Half-Life. Because I haven’t played Half-Life. I’m going shopping for a hessian sack now. The scratchier, the better. I deserve it.
