Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pulled From App Store

Commenting through the FAQ posted at the Baldur’s Gate website, Beamdog president Trent Oster sounded frustrated with the situation: “This has resulted in significant amounts of wailing and gnashing of teeth amongst the development team.”

Furthermore, the issue has also delayed the Android release of Enhanced Edition, as well as the forthcoming Baldur’s Gate II port:

“Unfortunately, until this matter is resolved, we are unable to release the latest Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition patch or Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android. This also prevents the launch of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition. I sincerely apologize to the series’ fans and promise we are working diligently to remedy the situation.”

Speaking to Kotaku, the developer clarified what prompted the move: “We pulled the game in response to a request from Atari’s legal representation.”

The issue only seems to have affected the mobile version of the game, as Enhanced Edition is still available on Steam. The title is also available in its original form (along with its sequel) at, where it is part of a massive “#NoDRM” sale until 3rd July.
