Baldur’s Gate yanked from iOS, sequel in doubt

The much-beloved Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition has been yanked from the Apple App Store, with developer Beamdog the bearer of bad news for gamers looking forward to the impending sequel.

I sincerely apologize to the series' fans and promise we are working diligently to remedy the situation.

The official statement, from Beamdog president Trent Oster, refers to "contractual issues" with the game's publisher, but refuses to go into more detail.

We recently removed Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition from sale on Beamdog and the Apple App Store. We've taken this step at our publishing partner's request as we attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues.

As well as postponing the launch of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, originally rumoured to be due later this month, the news also spells doom for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android. The latest update for the iOS release has also been put on ice.
