Baldur's Gate III may launch next year on Xbox

Baldur's Gate III may launch next year on Xbox

The most anticipated day of the year has finally arrived for many players. Baldur's Gate III is finally available to play on PC today and the is a huge community that is ready to download the 122GB of files that you need installed to play the game. You won't even be able to shorten that process if you played the game in Early Access unless you want to risk having some problems. But that does not seem to diminish the anticipation for Larian Studios RPG, which is already counted among the best-selling video games of the year on Steam.

All that has been said about the incredible journey that players from all over the world will begin today is not enough to describe the type of adventure that they will face. With all its innovative features and detailed graphics, Baldur's Gate III is still a huge mystery to be uncovered for all the players despite its long period in Early Access. New classes, multiclassing, the majority of the campaign, and many, many hours of adventures are yet to be experienced, commented on, and shared.



Console players have to wait in line

But if you are not planning to immerse in Baldur's Gate III on PC you are gonna have to wait a bit longer. The release of the game on PlayStation 5 is scheduled for September 6. Although one month is not much, it will be a painful wait for those willing to play the game on Sony's console, but it will be far worse for those who own an Xbox console. The development of Baldur's Gate III port for Microsoft's console is proving to be a challenge due to technical problems. Larian's director of publishing, Michael Douse has talked about the matter via Twitter (now X), where he explained that getting split-screen working on Series X is a challenging process that will take more than expected:

"We have quite a few engineers working very hard to do what no other RPG of this scale has achieved: seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op on Series S. We hope to have an update by the end of the year."

The information directly points to a possible Baldur's Gate III release in early 2024 for Xbox Series consoles at best, which is rather late but better than never. Hopefully, the developers will be able to speed up the process and give Xbox players access to the game earlier.
