Of course it will be moved up. On Deadfire you barely ship past Tutorial Island™ and have already leveled up like five times -- all the DOS games have you going from level 1 to godlike -- this is the gaming age of insta gratification and level ups around every even numbered hour at the least.
Wonder whether somebody will stand up how this is nothing like BG here too (nor part 2 base game).
I would say something if it were actually like that. EA is still only to level 4, and we're not going to level 20. For all we know the level cap will be 12, or 14, which is a perfectly reasonable cap for a video game adaptation of 5e.
