    According to a rumour posted on RPG Codex, Larian (Divinity series) now have the Baldur's Gate licence... interesting if true. More to follow in the news soon if we get confirmation of this.

    Ugh, people looking to make BG sequels and people wanting those sequels need to be slapped and made to think upon their stupidity. The series is finished and all you can do is make it worse as a whole, like SoD did. :nolike:

    Well, it wouldn't have to be a sequel necessarily. They could call it Baldur's Gate: Whatever and make it unrelated. Or still call it BG3 but only leave some vague connection to the original games. Or just go for the most obvious, the adventures of son of son of Bhaal. :shake:

    There is still a virtual mine of material to delve into from all the original novels and adventure modules from the old pen and paper to still keep the game way interesting:rolleyes:

    I wonder why fans want the name of Baldur's Gate, when it obviously doesn't really matter if it has any relation to the previous game. I mean, at that point it's just using the name for brand recognition, and it boggles the mind that this is actually what people really want. Why not give it a new name?

    Truthfully, they can Taylor the game out of literally thousands of Forgotten Realms campaigns from the original pen and paper D&D and would sell just as good

    I wouldn't mind seeing a game made from the Labrynth of Madness campaign. That Campaign was kickass

    And now the rumors are swirling again. The makers of Divinity Original Sin may very well be making BG3 though what that would entail is still a mystery.

    They're not really rumors anymore. Their website confirms it.

    How did I miss this whole forum, I must be going blind :confused:

    Larian will do a good job with BG3, considering how amazing D:OS2 was.

    That's just a cinematic trailer, but the graphics will probably on D:OS2 level, so it's highly doubtful that your laptop will run it. Time for an upgrade. :shake:

    It was moved to the D&D "forum of holding" a few years back when nothing new was happening on the BG3 front. I moved it back to the forum index as a standalone major forum yesterday, as @Yoshimo's Heart 's noticed.
