Baldur’s Gate 3 finally has an official release date

Larian Studios has finally confirmed an official release date for Baldur’s Gate 3, predicting the highly anticipated Dungeons & Dragons RPG to launch in full sometime in 2023.

The announcement was made during a recent D&D Direct livestream, in which the studio recapped the improvements made to Baldur’s Gate 3 since its launch in Early Access in 2020.

“By the Nine Hells, we’ve already added a lot of awesome stuff and there’s more where that came from,” the video’s narrator said, wearing a Tiefling cosplay. “So join us in Early Access on our journey to Baldur’s Gate 3, or come in 2023 when the game releases.”

Although this is Larian’s first time announcing an official release window for Baldur’s Gate 3, he does marry statements it was made earlier in the year, in which the studio said it expected the game to “release into early access in 2023” and describe a launch in 2022 as “unlikely”.

Larian didn’t say when, exactly, in 2023, the game will be released.

A lot of content has been added to Baldur’s Gate 3 since its early access two years ago. Additional player classes, races, quests, story content, and graphical overhauls have all been implemented, greatly expanding the size and depth of the game since it first appeared in Early Access.

But there is still a fair amount of content to come. Larian has previously confirmed that the game will feature all 12 D&D 5E classes at launch, which means the Paladin, Monk, and Bard will be added down the line. There’s also a bunch of quests to add, characters and storylines to complete, and plenty of quality of life issues to fix.

While you wait, you can always return to previous BioWare entries in the series. We believe playing Baldur’s Gate on the Nintendo Switch has revolutionized the classic RPG epic.
