As I said - it will be 2014 and we most likely we won't hear anything about released date until it is actually ready.

Yep, they seem to be alive, and this is great ... Only one week to wait until either an update or Larian tweeter death ...

Great ^^

Interesting that he didn't even mention the alpha in his update. I wonder if even the alpha will be a 2014 occurence now.

I'm a $500+ backer from RPGWatch and I won one of the alpha/beta invites for the site. I can wait; I'm replaying the non-dragon parts of Div 2. I just can't relate to playing a game as a beast, so I generally pretend winning the Battle Tower is the endgame.

Just plow through that part. If you got the DKS version of Div2, there is another wonderful town with dozens of good and fun quests.

I'm wondering if they did not forget the update for today, otherwise RPGCodex are going to have a great time with their twitter account.

He said that there would be a kickstarter update by Friday NEXT WEEK, not today.

Swen's blog seems to say that he's going to prioritize making the game the best it can be over committing to an unmovable deadline. I don't mind if there's a little delay if it makes the final product better.

I kind of hope they make beta-2 available to all kick start backers in late november if the game is delayed significantly (and I fully expect it to be delayed into Q1 or Q2 of 2014).

beta-2 ? what do you mean with beta-2.. making beta available for everyone doesn't seem quite fair since it was not only part of the tier rewards, but also an add-on..

Well that's why I said beta-2. Beta-1 can be made available for those who paid for it and then a month later they could open it up as beta-2 to everyone on kickstart. Would this not please those who paid for beta (getting access to the the game a month early) but then allow for even further feedback (via beta-2) before the final release ?

I dunno, I have no issues with the delay, it is something I expected once the original release date was mentioned.

A bit disappointed about alpha delay, though.

Good for you guys! Thanks for taking the time to make the game even better. We appreciate the honesty. Sure, I think we're a little disappointed we won't be able to play alpha now but November isn't far away and February is just around the corner.

Project Update #45: Divinity:Original Sin Release Date Is Set
Posted by Larian Studios LLCLike
Welcome Back

It has now been exactly five months since we closed our Kickstarter campaign. Looking back, it was quite a ride, and one of the best parts was that all stretch goals were met!

As we were integrating the stretch goals in the game in the last couple of months, we realised they affected a lot of the game systems and this would be more work than we thought.

Deeper character creation (traits and talents) made us rethink the stats system, the inclusion of companions meant we had to have more party support, and the day and night schedules affected all the behaviours of NPCs. And even the world they live in! Because where else would these people live and sleep?

The following video has Swen & Axel explain what including the stretch goals meant for the development of the game, and features an example of how schedules for instance influenced the game world. Here's a spoiler:


"I wonder what that fire is on the first floor... And how do I get to the second floor?" - (fullscreen image)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3VQMTkIxcw
Original Sin Set For February 2014

We are very determined to implement all the extra features gained through stretch goals the way they should be implemented, which essentially means that we want to incorporate them in the story, the world and the gameplay mechanics. This is taking us more time than we originally thought, and so we decided to move the release of Divinity: Original Sin from this fall (as originally announced) to this winter, specifically to February 28th 2014.

For backers that have Alpha access, expect to have the rough and rugged version of Original Sin by November. Beta should be your New Year's present in January!

What are they thinking ?

For those interested in the details of the how and why, check out Swen's brand new blog entry, in which he explains his thoughts on postponing the release of Divinity: Original Sin.

Live QA on friday September 27h at 17:00 CET

We'll be doing a live QA session via the Larian Studios channel on Twitch TV tomorrow, september 27th, 17:00 CET. Join in, and you'll be able to ask David or Swen pretty much anything you want about Divinity: Original Sin via the chat channel. They'll try to answer as many questions as they can, and perhaps even show a bit of the game.

In closing: Fan day report

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! On August 9th, a wild horde of screaming fans descended upon the Larian Studios' offices, and hijacked what was to be the Dragon Commander release party. We made a video to mark the occasion, but we forgot to post it! So without further ado, here's the video report on Larian Studios' first ever fan day!
