To be more specific, Obsidian Entertainment has entered into a partnership with Paradox Interactive to launch their upcoming RPG Pillars of Eternity.
Everything is explained on the new FAQ. Here’s a quote:
Simply put, Paradox is assuming responsibility for the marketing and distribution of Pillars of Eternity. What this means is that Obsidian can now devote all of their time and resources to the development of Pillars of Eternity and make the game the best it can be.
Pillars of Eternity is set to launch this winter on PC, Mac and Linux. The game is described as an “isometric, real-time with pause, good old-fashioned old school cRPG”. Here’s a short gameplay teaser.
