Baldur's Gate 3 PS5

Baldur's Gate 3 team Larian Studios has confirmed it has two new games in the works as it looks to moves on from the Baldur's Gate IP. Having put together one of the greatest RPGs in a generation last year, the Belgian developer won't be making any new narrative content for the third iteration or creating a Baldur's Gate 4. Instead, it's two brand new games, which CEO Swen Vincke is calling the studio's "best work ever".

The news comes from a community update to Steam, where a seventh major patch for Baldur's Gate 3 is revealed. The update is looking to make dark endings even more evil, get official mod tools in place, and add some new customisation options. Crossplay support and a Photo Mode are also planned for the RPG.

At the bottom of the article, it's said that Larian Studios has decided to "develop our own IPs. We’re currently working on two new projects and we couldn’t be more excited about what the future has in store." While the games are still early in development, the developer says it's fuelled "by the very same fire in our bellies [as Baldur's Gate 3], one that drives us to create immersive experiences shaped by your choices, and we can’t wait for you to join us on this next adventure".

Swen Vincke himself then explains: "I don’t know if we’re going to pull it off, but looking at our narrative, visual and gameplay plans, I think what we’re working on now will be our best work ever. I get excited like a kid watching the key imagery, want to show it to everyone now and grumble in frustration at having to wait until it’s actually all working."

Larian Studios doesn't drop any hints as to what the two new games could be, but it's possible one of them could be a new entry in its Divinity: Original Sin series. Before the release of Baldur's Gate 3, Vincke said the team would "definitely" return to the series "at some point". The developer doesn't have any notable IPs to its name besides Divinity, so anything else would be a brand-new world.
