As if Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines 2 wasn't enough of a RPG announcement for this year, the front page of Larian's official site is currently displaying a big fat teaser with the number 3 on it. While this initially spurred speculation towards it being Original Sin 3 (or just plain Divinity 3) some digging into the metadata by enterprising souls revealed... Baldur's Gate.
I guess this has been rumored for a while, and it makes sense given that the upcoming big D&D adventure is partially set in Baldur's Gate but it's still one of the more "HOLY SHIT WHAT" moments for me in recent memory. If there's a studio I would trust to do right by Baldur's Gate of all series, it'd be Larian at this point. This also makes sense when you consider that Divinity: Fallen Heroes, the XCOM-ish spinoff announced a few weeks ago, was outsourced to Logic Artists, the team behind Expeditions: Viking.
I'm still kind of floored over here, but it does leave me with a lot of questions: How are they going to integrate the ruleset? Is it going to be turn-based or real-time with pause? Will we finally have another good D&D video game after Neverwinter Nights 2? I'm interested in finding out.
