After almost two decades since the launch of the original Baldur’s Gate II, Larian Studios, in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast, announced that they will be tackling the development of Baldur’s Gate III. This title is claimed to be the biggest production ever tackled by the studio and will be playable single-player or with friends.
“Baldur’s Gate means so much to so many people. It’s a great responsibility but I think we’re ready for it,” said Swen Vincke, Creative Director at Larian Studios. “We’re all about creating reactive, systemic worlds that respect player agency and having a chance to apply our team’s skillset in a universe as rich as Dungeons & Dragons is a lot of fun. We’re working very closely with Wizards to bring an unprecedented level of immersion to the realm of Faerun and I can’t wait to show the world what our team cooked up.”
“Partnering with Larian, a studio that combines a remarkable history of critically-acclaimed titles with a genuine passion for one of the most iconic locations in Dungeons & Dragons, has been a terrific experience,” said Chris Cocks, President of Wizards of the Coast. “We believe fans of the Baldur’s Gate saga – and even those new to the series – will be thrilled to step into this epic story.”
More news on this exciting project will be revealed throughout the year. Larian Studios states that they will work with the global community to bring the series to life. Baldur’s Gate III will be coming to PC and Google Stadia. For more information, visit the official website.
