Larian Studios Says That There is Still a Chance That Baldur’s Gate 3 Will be Released on Xbox
Regarding Baldur’s Gate 3’s availability on Xbox, Larian Studios has released the following official statement:
We’ve reiterated that Baldur’s Gate 3 will be released for PC, Mac, GeForce NOW, and PS5 after yesterday’s PS5 release date announcement. We don’t have any restrictions on the platforms or the launch date for BG3. We’ll announce support for new platforms if and when we’re prepared.
We wanted to provide more clarification because we see different interpretations. Baldur’s Gate 3 on the Xbox has been developing for a while. In particular, we have yet to get split-screen co-op to work to the same standard on both Xbox Series X and S, which we need to ship. As a result, we have been 100% secure in announcing the Xbox port once we’ve found the proper solutions.
Should it be feasible, we could release BG3 on Xbox on the specified date because no platform exclusivity stops us from doing so. We want to ensure that every version meets our standards and expectations before announcing any further platforms.
Baldur’s Gate 3 will launch on August 31 for the PlayStation 5 and PC, it was announced during Thursday’s PlayStation State of Play conference. The mention of Baldur’s Gate 3 for Xbox needed to be more present.
Larian Studios claims it isn’t excluding the possibility of developing the game for the Microsoft Xbox in a statement to Push Square.
According to a representative, Larian is preparing to release Baldur’s Gate 3 on PC, Mac, GeForce NOW, and PS5. They don’t have exclusivity and will reveal support for more platforms as soon as they’re prepared.
Afterward, Larian CEO Swen Vincke responded to complaints from fans on Twitter regarding the game’s exclusivity for the PS5 system.
Relax, he advised. We’re still not participating in the exclusivity game.
Since October 2020, PC players have had early access to Baldur’s Gate 3. Over that period, it has undergone innumerable upgrades and additions, including character kinds and story expansions.
Holy Knight, the most recent significant update, debuted back in December. With the update, the game’s Paladin class and new subclasses were both included. The level cap was raised to five in addition to the new class and many new spells and abilities for players.
Up to the game’s final release in August, more updates will be released.
Larian, the author of Divinity: Original Sin, contributed a brand-new tale to Baldur’s Gate 3. Players will contend with getting infected and evolving into corrupted creatures as part of the plot.
The game’s description states, “as the depravity within of you develops, so does your power.” “That power might help you live, but there will be a cost to pay. More than any talent, your greatest asset is the trust you develop with your party members. Together, you will decide the fate of the Forgotten Realms as you are pitted against gods, demons, and evil forces.
