“Baldur’s Gate means so much to so many people. It’s a great responsibility but I think we’re ready for it.” – Swen Vincke, Creative Director at Larian Studios.
It was announced yesterday (6th June 2019) that Baldur’s Gate III will be developed and published in-house by Larian Studios, the creators of the award-winning RPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2. Baldurs Gate III will be created by Larian in close collaboration with the Dungeons & Dragons team at Wizards of the Coast. Baldur’s Gate III is based on D&D mechanics and spells and is the official new chapter in the legendary series.
Chris Cocks, President of Wizards of the Coast, said that “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. 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.” Larian Studios have also said that they plan to work closely with the global community to bring the coveted series to life.
A short but exciting teaser trailer was also released. It shows the return of a ‘malevolent presence to Baldur’s Gate, intent on devouring it from the inside out, corrupting everything that remains in the Forgotten Realms.’
Alone you may resist, but together you can overcome. Gather your party.
