The launch of Baldur's Gate III has been delayed

Considering the whole situation this year, we should already be accustomed to hearing news about the postponement of video games releases but when we are talking of one of the most anticipated titles in recent years it turns out to be quite disappointing. Baldur's Gate III was going to be playable this August. Even if it was not going to be the final version of the game and it was only going to be available on Early Access, legions of fans of the franchise and the role-playing games were eagerly waiting for the release of the game to be able to delve into the Forgotten Realms universe once again. Everything was going fine and the footage of the game released so far contributed to raising the expectations of the fans exponentially, but then, Larian just announced yesterday that the game won't be available this month.


Good news and bad news. BG3 won’t hit August, but it’s just around the corner. We’ll be announcing the release date, as well as big news on the Panel From Hell alongside @geoffkeighley, @LarAtLarian and the Larian crew. Tune in Aug 18th.

Although this is a huge disappointment, the good side of the news is that the official Tweet from Larian Studios confirms that the release of Baldur's Gate III is just around the corner and that we will have more news about this in just a couple of weeks. We can't miss the Panel From Hell on August 18 if we want to find out what's really going on with Baldur's Gate III and when we will be able to play it. The livestream will be viewable on the official Baldur's Gate III website and it's starting at 10 am PT.

If you are not a Baldur's Gate fan you might be wondering what's all the fuss about, but we can guarantee you that Baldur's Gate III is likely to be one of the most important role-playing games of all time. That's not only because of the relevance of the previous games in the series but also because of its impressive features that you can watch in the gameplay videos that have been published so far.
