Bad news, CRPG fans waiting for the second coming in the Baldur’s Gate series. Baldur’s Gate 3 is not launching as an Early Access title in August.
Larian CEO Swen Vincke said in June that the studio can’t release the early version of the game at that time because of COVID-19 slowing down development.
“We’ve been hit like everybody else in the world. Nonetheless, we managed to make a lot of progress, so we think we’re going to make it.”
However, the game will be out “just around the corner” of 2020. The actual date will be revealed on 19th August 1am GMT+8 in the “Panel from Hell” featuring Vincke and his team, as well as Summer Games Festival and Game Awards talking head Geoff Keighley.
Good news and bad news. BG3 won’t hit August, but it’s just around the corner. We’ll be announcing the release date, as well as big news on the Panel From Hell alongside @geoffkeighley, @LarAtLarian and the Larian crew. Tune in Aug 18th. https://t.co/S1RlVpJ8yw pic.twitter.com/NCkrnHHpH0
