Baldur's Gate 3 will launch on Xbox consoles too

When the announcement of the release date for Baldur's Gate III was made a few days ago, developer Larian Studios only provided a specific date for PC and PlayStation 5. Such an event left many players wondering if the upcoming role-playing game wouldn't be available on Microsoft's consoles. The community rapidly voiced its disappointment on the internet, and the studio was forced to tackle such an issue with a response. Larian confirmed that there is an Xbox version of Baldur's Gate III in the works, but the developers have had technical problems and they are not ready to reveal a release date on the platform.

"Xbox players, we’ve seen your questions about if/when you can expect Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox. We’ve had an Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 in the works for some time, but we have run into some technical issues – particularly with split-screen co-op. We are still working on an Xbox version of BG3, but we’re not yet confident enough to announce it. We don’t like announcing anything until we’re ready, because we don’t want to get people's hopes up until we’re sure we can deliver.

There’s no platform exclusivity preventing us from releasing BG3 on Xbox day and date, should that be a technical possibility. If and when we do announce further platforms, we want to make sure each version lives up to our standards & expectations. Thanks for understanding!"

Therefore, If you intend to play Baldur's Gate III on Xbox, you can rest assured that you will be able to enjoy the upcoming adventure and return to the Forgotten Realms sometime in the future. 



As you know from the announcement, Baldur's Gate III is to be released on PC and PlayStation 5 on August 31, and it will probably become one of the most important releases in recent years, at least for RPG fans.
