Baldur’s Gate 3 Won’t Launch Until 2023

Baldur’s Gate Won’t Be Out of Early Access Until 2023

Baldur’s Gate 3 fans will be disappointed to know that their game will not fully release this year. According to Larian Founder Swen Vincke, the team behind the game is still in their “last year of development.”

We do still think we have a year of development ahead of us,” Vincke revealed. “So, it is unlikely it will be this year.”

Fortunately for fans of the franchise, the devs “are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now.” “We are at the end,” he added. “We have a pretty concrete plan.

At the moment, the gaming community can access a part of Baldur’s Gate 3 through Early Access on Stadia and Steam. Devs want to produce a high quality game before fully releasing it to the gaming public. 

Our internal goal post for release is a quality bar rather than a date,” he continued. “A ton of progress has been made towards that quality bar over the pasts year in Early Access.

Furthermore, once the Baldur’s Gate 3 team is much closer to meeting their goal, they will finally release the game in its full form. “We know many players are waiting for an actual date,” he said. “That date will come when we are even closer to meeting our goal but right now our expectation is that Baldur’s Gate 3 will be released out of Early Access in 2023.

Larian is currently on the tail end of the development process for the game. This suggests that devs are just about done developing the other parts. Once finished, they will just have to do some polishing and some fixing. This, as fans expect, will take some time.

As expected, this delay has made the game’s fans not too pleased. However, they would much rather have a great game later on than a mediocre one filled with bugs sooner.
