Paradox Interactive to publish Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity

Paradox Interactive will publish Obsidian Entertainment's Pillars of EternityCEO Fredrik Wester announced during GDC today.

The Kickstarter-funded Pillars of Eternity is slated to launch later this year, sometime between summer and Christmas 2014.

"We are looking at this as a along term relationship because we share a lot of vision with the Obsidian guys," Wester said. "As you know, their pedigree is unmatched in this industry."

"We've loved Paradox games for years and we are really impressed with how they care about what they do," Obsidian head Feargus Urquhart added. The companies began talking about the collaboration two years ago.

Obsidian will remain in creative control of Pillars of Eternity, while Paradox will focus on marketing, public relations and fulfillment of Kickstarter rewards for the title. Wester noted that at least 10 employees at Paradox are also backers of the project.

Urquhart affirmed that every dollar contributed by backers has gone into the game and Obsidian will uphold "every one of its promises" for the title, include all backer rewards and planned features.

"We are absolutely going to ship this year," Urquhart added. "We are sure we're going to make it."
