Avowed was one of the great absentees of an Xbox and Bethesda conference at E3 2021, however, really full of games and news, however it seems that the Obsidian game is alive and well and perhaps even at a good point with development, so much so that the team has reported that it will be shown “soon” , while according to the usual Jeff Grubb its release period is expected to be 2023.
Obsidian showed up at the showcase with Grounded and the surprise The Outer Worlds 2 , while Avowed was not shown, despite its trailer being present at last year’s Xbox Showcase, which may have disappointed many users in anticipation of this. interesting RPG set in the world of Eora, or that of Pillars of Eternity.
The title was however mentioned by Microsoft in a new post on Xbox Wire, where it was reported to be showing soon: “For those wondering what happened to Avowed, the team is hard at work building something that fans of the our games and the Pillars of Eternity universe will love, “Obsidian reported,” While we haven’t shown anything at the moment, we can’t wait to show what we’re working on soon. ”
In short, there is no official timing but it is likely that there is not another year to wait before we can see something about this RPG in first person. According to Jeff Grubb , a VentureBeat journalist and well-known insider – therefore an unofficial source but which can be considered reliable – Avowed would be scheduled for 2023, along with several other games in development at Xbox Game Studios. As for this and next year, therefore, there will be room for other titles but Avowed still needs some time before reaching completion.
