According to an investor’s call (via DSOG), the team plans to release said game and Dark Alliance in 2020 as they continue to invest resources into an additional five other Dungeons and Dragons projects for the next several years. That’s a total o seven D&D games planned on their timeline.
Later this month, fans will get a peek at some gameplay during PAX East 2020 as well. After the breathtaking teaser that revealed motion-capture action scenes and dialogue, music, and more – we’re ready for more! Based on previous news we’ve covered on Baldur’s Gate 3, the upcoming game will feature more than 100 hours of content and the reprisal of familiar characters. According to Larian Studios, this will be the largest role-playing game they’ve ever been tasked to develop.
