Update: Brian Fargo has retweeted Kotaku's report on Larian's teaser. If you're wondering who he is, he co-founded Interplay, the company that published the old Baldur's Gate titles. It seems he could be involved in the new game.


Original story: It looks as though Larian Studios is on the brink of revealing something quite exciting for old-school RPG fans. The Baldur's Gate games are held in high regard, at the time making huge steps forward for the genre. While there have been several titles since 1998, including a couple on PlayStation 2, there's never been a Baldur's Gate 3. It looks like that could be about to change.

Larian's official website has been taken over by the above image. As pointed out by Kotaku, many believed this to be a hint at Divinity: Original Sin 3. However, a Twitter user investigated further, and found several references to Baldur's Gate 3 hidden within the page's HTML code.

The developer has been quietly making universally acclaimed RPGs for a while now; its Original Sin games, both of which made their way to PS4, are both widely celebrated in their own right. In light of this, it's possible the team has secured the licence to produce a new Baldur's Gate, and hey, E3 is right around the corner. Whether the game makes it to consoles is another question, but there's no real reason for it not to.

What do you think? Does this all mean Baldur's Gate 3 is on the way from Larian Studios? Roll the dice in the comments below.
