It looks like all the speculation and rumors came true, as we now have official word that Baldur’s Gate 3 is in the works and coming from Larian Studios. Not only that, but heading to PC and for those who are going to be moving over to Stadia for their gaming needs when that service officially launches. Yes, that means this is yet another of the titles announced during the major event just ahead of E3 all so we can get our expectations up for what Baldur’s Gate 3 may actually hold at the end of the day. I am certain that fans will be looking for anything and hype levels will be through the roof for this one.
Sadly, all that is currently known for Baldur’s Gate 3 is what was mentioned there and the new cinematic trailer to give us a feeling of what the game could hold. Fans of the original will obviously see a few things mixed in there that will make it into the game. Not to mention that fans of the current D&D system will have those mechanics to look forward to as they are being used for this Baldur’s Gate when it comes to the basics and spells. Something that Wizards of the Coast is working closely with these developers to get right. It is something I am certain fans of the franchise will not let anyone live down if it does not.
