Fallen Heroes has fallen.

Divinity: Original Sin developer Larian Studios has indefinitely postponed one of its upcoming projects. The studio announced that the tactics game Divinity: Fallen Heroes is now postponed with no new release date announced. Larian was working with Danish developer Logic Artists on the game.

"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," Larian said in a message posted to Twitter.

Fallen Heroes was announced in March 2019, though Larian was working with Logic Artists for more than a year before the game was officially announced. It was due for release in November 2019, but that is no longer going to happen.

Larian will place its focus now on the ongoing development of Baldur's Gate 3, while Logic Artists is working on its own new game called Expeditions. "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."

Logic Artists said in the joint statement, "It's always said 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."

While Fallen Heroes might not be coming anytime soon, you can always go back and play Original Sin 2--it is one of GameSpot's favorite games ever.

In our review, we gave the game a 10/10, and the title went on to be one of our favorites of 2017. It's definitive edition is also one of our best reissued games of 2018. A Nintendo Switch version launched in September 2019.
