The as-yet unnamed Legend of Zelda game coming to the Wii U will not release this year after all.
In a video update, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma said that the development team is focussing on creating a quality game rather than on just getting it out this year.
"In these last three months, as the team has experienced firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn't existed in any Zelda game to date, we have discovered several new possibilities for this game," he said.
"As we have worked to turn these possibilities into reality, new ideas have continued to spring forth, it now feels like we have the potential to create something that exceeds even my own expectations.
"We are no longer making our 2015 release our number one priority. Instead, our priority is to make it the most complete and ultimate Zelda game," he added.
Obsidian has announced that it's working on a Pillars of Eternity patch to fix a number of issues reported by users.

Among the reported issues are framerate drops, crashes on 32-bit PCs, the inability to launch the game unless in administrator mode, the inability to save, issues with animal companions, repeated sound effects, and delayed audio.
