Baldur's Gate 3 is in the works for Xbox, but Larian Studios is not ready to announce it
Following the release date and PlayStation 5 platform announcement of Baldur's Gate 3, a Larian Studios representative has made a statement regarding the RPG and its release on Xbox consoles.
An Xbox version of Baldur's Gate is in development, but 'technical issues' have prevented the studio from confirming a release date at this time.
The statement in full can be found below.
Thanks for all the hype and enthusiasm following yesterday’s announcement that Baldur’s Gate 3 is coming to PS5 day and date with PC on August 31st!
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 peoples 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!
