Crommi • @feckless: I can think of couple reasons to use the BG name:1) They want to make it clear as to what style of game it will be (Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale games all play little bit differently). 2) It also tells us where the story takes place, which is confirmed by the trailer. Guard who is being attacked by mindflayer is wearing emblem of the Flaming Fist, who serve as guards for the city of Baldur's Gate. I suspect that the story begins from there and then expands further to the north because there is plenty of unexplored area and locations that hasn't been visited in the games before. I don't think it is going to follow-up on the story of BG2 rather than it's own thing that may at most reference things that happened in previous games. Too long time has passed since previous game and that story was wrapped up anyways.
