we (cRPG lovers) might be having some great news in the following days. A year or so ago, a member of RPGCodex said that a buddy of his/her worked in Larian studios and that he learned that Larian studios obtained the license for a Baldur’s Gate game. I didn’t follow the topic, because to be honest it could be a random person saying random stuff, and because I try to stay as far away from the Codex forums in general.
Fast forward to last week, Larian studios updated their website to only show the number 3 in roman numerals and a minimal animation. Theories said that it could be a Divinity Original Sin 3, but a dig through the source files of the animation reveals the name and trademark notices of Baldur’s Gate 3 and WotC.
Anyway, whoever is unfamiliar with the studio (I doubt people don’t know them, but still). They are the creators of 2 of the most successful cRPGs of the last 5 years, Divinity Original Sin 1 and 2. I, personally, could not think of a better studio to create a BG3. Still, only a rumor but worth sharing, I think.
I hope this rumor will turn to be true and we’ll get to enjoy another installment to the genre we love.
