Baldur’s Gate III announced

The tenth installment of the Baldur’s Gate series has been announced, and for the very first time, it will be available on Google Stadia as well. Dubbed as Baldur’s Gate III, the game is being developed – and published – by Belgian video game developers Larian Studios. Baldur’s Gate III is based on the current Dungeons & Dragons mechanics and spells and will be an official new chapter in the series. A release date has yet to be announced, but the game will be available on PC and Google Stadia.

Larian Studios wants to push the boundaries of the RPG genre with Baldur’s Gate III by offering a rich narrative and unprecedented player freedom whilst allowing high-stakes decisions to be made by the player. Naturally, Baldur’s Gate III will include memorable combat and many unique companion characters. For Larian Studios, known for the Divinity series, including the critically-acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin 2, will be pushing their own boundaries as it will be their biggest production ever.

“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.”
