Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire recently got a release date of April 3 but now more good news has come out. Unlike the first game, console owners won’t have to wait to play the sequel.

Obsidian has announced today that Pillars of Eternity 2 will be releasing simultaneously on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and even the Nintendo Switch.

Obsidian Entertainment are primarily working on the PC version of the game with Red Cerberus handling the console ports. I can’t say anything about their track record as they don’t seem to have released anything yet. However, I have faith in Obsidian and Versus Evil to choose a good dev to make a faithful port that plays well.

Here’s hoping they learn from the console ports of the first Pillars, which made the game compatible with a controller setup without sacrificing any of the core mechanics’ quality.
