Baldur’s Gate 3 will be making an appearance at The Game Awards 2023, where it will finally reveal the release date for its Xbox version. Though Baldur’s Gate 3 initially moved its release date to August for fear of clashing with Starfield‘s launch, this decision ended up paying dividends for Larian, as not only was Baldur’s Gate 3 afforded a chance to shine, but it firmly solidified its place as one of the best games to come out in a stacked year of gaming.
Baldur’s Gate 3 launched its PS5 version in September, and the developers promised that an Xbox version was on its way by the end of 2023. Though no DLCs for Baldur’s Gate 3 are in the works just yet, Xbox players will benefit from several patches filled with bug fixes and improvements. Moreover, during the development of Baldur’s Gate 3‘s Xbox port, Larian discovered a way to increase performance across all three platforms, ensuring that its players will have an even better experience.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox Release Date To Be Revealed On December 7
Even though Larian firmly stood by a late 2023 release window for Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox, many fans were wondering if its launch would be moved into early 2024. The official Baldur’s Gate 3 account on Twitter quashed those rumors for the final time when it made an announcement that the exact date of its 2023 Xbox launch would be revealed during The Game Awards on December 7.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a colossal title, filled to the brim with secrets and treasure, and Xbox players will finally be able to see what all the fuss is about. There are so many areas that Baldur’s Gate 3 players can miss, and it often takes several playthroughs to experience all the content that the game can provide. For example, playing as The Dark Urge in Baldur’s Gate 3 can radically change the campaign’s story, even if the ultimate goal remains the same.
While fans are hoping that its developers will do more with the Baldur’s Gate setting before moving on, Larian has already teased its next project as being in the works. The community believes that it will likely be a sequel to Divinity: Original Sin, the series that prepared Larian for the daunting task of developing Baldur’s Gate 3, but with the resounding success that Larian’s latest title brought to the studio, it could very well be a pivot into something else entirely.
