Larian CEO has been ‘Reading the Reddit threads’ and wants us to remove our tinfoil hats, says Wizards of the Coast isn’t the reason Baldur’s Gate 3 is finished



Aside from whatever patches Larian has in mind, Baldur’s Gate 3 is donezo, and the news has more than a few people looking for someone to blame. For many, the answer is obvious: Dungeons and Dragons licence-holder Wizards of the Coast (WOTC). Speculation abounds that WOTC did something to scupper its relationship with Larian, dooming our hopes of more BG3 forever.

But Larian CEO Swen Vincke has now come out to say that’s not the case. In a post on Twitter, Vincke said he’s been “Reading the Reddit threads,” and felt obliged to clarify the situation, at least a little. “WOTC is not responsible for us taking a different direction,” wrote Vincke, “On the contrary, they really did their best and have been a great licensor for us, letting us do our thing.” Rather than a dramatic falling out, Vincke says the decision to leave D&D behind is because “it’s what’s best for Larian.”
