Baldur’s Gate 3 Director Confirms Larian Studios is Already Working on a New Game
During an interview with the Dungeons & Dragons YouTube channel, Swen Vincke, the director of Baldur’s Gate 3, revealed that Larian Studios is not wasting any time and is already busy with their next project (via PCGamesN).
Vincke mentioned that after completing a game, there is often a feeling of emptiness for game developers. However, he shared that the team is already thinking about the next project and there is a strong desire to start working on it.
“I’m busy on the next game. The PS5 version is shipping – we just uploaded it – so I’m done. So, I’m going to move onto the next game. The other team is going to be working on patches and stuff, but for me personally, this creative path is done now. I’m closing the chapter,” Vincke added.
Baldur’s Gate 3 has received critical acclaim and is currently the highest-rated game of the year on Metacritic, surpassing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom with a score of 96 out of 100. It has also become one of Steam’s most popular games.
Vincke also revealed that he had lower expectations for the game’s launch, fearing that it would receive mediocre scores or encounter major bugs. However, the success of the game has surpassed his expectations.
