Obsidian Entertainment’s CEO, Feargus Urquhart, has confirmed that the team is currently working on the sequel to Pillars of Eternity. In an interview with Gamepressure, Feargus said that Obsidian has started moving forward on Pillars of Eternity II.
As Feargus said:
“Eternity II is not announced, [but] it seems silly for me not to acknowledge it, though. If someone asks: “Are you working on it?”, I respond: “Well, wouldn’t you work on it?”. So then they say: “So you must be working on it”, and then I’m like: “Well, yeah””
Feargus also claimed that Pillars of Eternity II might have a Kickstarter campaign, especially after the success of the Kickstarter for the first game. Obsidian Entertainment is looking at it, and has not decided yet whether it will rely – once again – on Kickstarter in order to give RPG fans a game similar to Pillars of Eternity.
“Obviously, as you’ve probably guessed, we’re starting to move forward on Pillars of] Eternity II. That is probably something that we want to look at [in terms of crowdfunding]. I think people felt like we delivered on our promise, and then that felt like we could go with Eternity II and people would support us again, because they trust us.”
All in all, it’s pretty exciting that Obsidian is working on a sequel to Pillars of Eternity!
