Obsidian Entertainment has announced that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will be hitting consoles in 2019, with a Nintendo Switch version also now planned.

Speaking in a new update on the console release, the studio, which was recently acquired by Microsoft, revealed that Grip Digital is handling the PS4, Xbox One, and Switch versions of the game. In addition, the console release of Pillars of Eternity II will feature all currently released DLC right out of the box.

'If you read our last update, we promised to have more information regarding Deadfire's console release. As we stated, our partners at Grip Digital have been hard at work, and Deadfire will be releasing on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in 2019! We are pleased to also announce that the console edition will ship with all expansions, updates, and free DLCs included at launch! We don't have an exact date for you yet, but as soon as we have one, we will let you know!' reads the statement.

In case you haven't been keeping up, Pillars of Eternity II was originally slated to appear on consoles in holiday 2018, so it should have been out by now.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire was released on the PC back in May, and received a fresh helping of DLC, The Forgotten Sanctum, just last week.
