It’s surreal to think about just how much this game has meant to us at Obsidian, and how much it’s changed us as a developer,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Working so closely with our backer community was a major part of the process, and helped us understand precisely what our fans wanted. Now, with Pillars of Eternity winning awards and standing as one of the biggest RPG releases of 2015, I’m proud to say we fulfilled our promise to our backers, and then some. Best of all, we’ve got plenty more stories we plan to tell within the world of Pillars of Eternity.”
