Baldur’s Gate 3 is nearing an official release as developer Larian has said this will be its last year in development.
Studio head Swen Vincke told PCGamesN that, while the priority is always to make the game as good as possible, he expects Larian to achieve a full release in the next year.
He said: “We’re going to release it when it’s ready. The main goal here is quality: getting the game at the quality level that it needs to be.
“That said, we do think we still need a year to do that. But it will be the last year. We’re getting to the end of it.”
Vincke added that Baldur’s Gate 3’s full release is “probably not this year, but it’s not going to be much later than that.”
While this still seems uncertain, Larian said in June last year that the game wouldn’t leave Early Access until at least 2022, so its official launch does appearing to be inching closer.
The Early Access version of Baldur’s Gate 3 released in October 2020 with several dozens of hours of content, and IGN said it was “probably the closest a story-focused RPG of this kind has come to emulating the experience of tabletop Dungeons & Dragons.”
