Default Divinity: Fallen Heroes - Put On Hold

October 15th, 2019, 16:49
It doesn't look like Divinity: Fallen Heroes is going to be released, as all development on the game has ceased.

It is with a profound sense of regret that today we announce Divinity: Fallen Heroes has been put on hold, as we fondly celebrate the work done so far. We've been working with Logic Artists for over a year since before the announcement on March 27, 2019. Though enthused by the reception of the announcement and the energy of our fans, we have taken many things into consideration over the course of the last few months, and today we're ready to talk about its future.

Originally scheduled for a November 2019 release, it has become clear to everyone involved that the game will need far greater development time and resources than are available now to bring it to fruition, in a fun and sustainable way.

Going forward, we at Larian will continue to work on Baldur's Gate 3 with news coming soon, and Logic Artists will be focusing on their own Expeditions games. As an independent developer ourselves, we understand and value the importance of a developer investing into their own IPs, and their own future.

We're sorry for the players excited for Fallen Heroes, who will have to wait an unspecified period of time, but we strongly believe that bringing Fallen Heroes to fans should be done in a timeline that allows it to be developed soundly.

We value the work that everyone has put in to Fallen Heroes, and though we lament its status as of now, we all agree that there's a great game in there that will sometime reach the players who await it.

Logic Artists shared the following statement: "It's always sad to put an exciting project on hold, but sometimes the realities of development and release schedules simply assert themselves in ways that are outside anyone's control. It's been an incredible honour to work with Larian on their Divinity IP, and everyone at Logic Artists has been blown away by how helpful and welcoming Larian has been throughout the project.

There's no doubt we've learned much that will benefit our own projects in the future, and we'll always be grateful for that experience. As our own team pivots to focus fully on the third installment of the Expeditions series and a new IP of our very own, we wish Larian the best of luck with Baldur's Gate 3. We can't wait to play it!"

I really wanted that game.

BG3 can wait for a decade more for all I care.

I second that. Would rather play this tactics game from Logic Artists. :/

Larian hasn't had a decent game since Divinity 2 imo. I'm not sure we need another "tactical" combat game. There are like 70,000,000 even though most barely break even.

Divinty 2 wasn't by Larian? Divinity II is an action role-playing game developed by Larian Studios. Its first release in 2009 was subtitled Ego Draconis, and was published by dtp entertainment and in the United States by cdv Software Entertainment.[3] The updated 2011 re-release The Dragon Knight Saga which included the expansion Flames of Vengeance, as well as the final 2012 release as Divinity II: Developer's Cut, were published by Focus Home Interactive.

Bummed for the people looking forward to this one, but this isn't anything I would have played myself.

From anouncement to On Hold in less than 7 month - strange.
Either Logic Artists really fucked up or the On Hold decision was a mutual and rational agreement - hoping for the last.

It would certainly have been better than Original Sin two was, at least that was my hope. Now I can just let it go.

That's got to be a hit to their bottom line, and they seemed to be doing so well after D:OS2.

I suspect Larian was funding this - they reviewed the state of the game and decided it wasn't very good and terminated the contract with Logistic Artists. They (Larian) will probably finish it or redo it after they finish bg3 - that is my speculation on what has happened.

It's a shame but I'd rather Logic Artist focus on their next Expeditions game, so not a big deal for me

Kinda, though it might have been on a bit more positve note.
It kind of sounds like Logic Artists went into that thing without fully knowing what is expected from them. They might have a running first version and Larian might now be like "But we also want you to have this and that", and Logic Artists might be like "But that's more than we could do while keeping the company healthy."

Ok, that came as a surprise. Game looked as good as finished.
Who hasn't yet should get Expeditions: Viking as a good alternative asap.

I've missed the news about this game entirely. What is/was it?

EDIT: Yeah, I COULD google it, but that's not as fun.

This could have been a fun game for a while, but if it was not up to Larian standards, I think it's a good idea to cancel it. I like that Larian shows integrity and they didn't just go "whatever, just release it and cash in" on the project.
