We’ve learned (via Gamepressure) that Obsidian Entertainment is working on Pillars of Eternity II.

The news comes via the Digital Dragons 2016 conference in Kraków, Poland, where Obsidian CEO and founder Feaurgus Urquhart confirmed the game’s production.

“Obviously, as you’ve probably guessed, we’re starting to move forward on [Pillars of] Eternity II,” said Uruhart.

“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.”

It’s certainly interesting to hear Obsidian is probably turning to crowdfunding for the sequel, considering the success of the original Pillars of Eternity. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the original game here (we highly recommend it).
