After Larian’s departure from the Baldur’s Gate series, the responsibility now falls on Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro to continue the legacy of this beloved franchise. While there are no immediate plans for DLC or a sequel, discussions are already underway regarding the future of Baldur’s Gate. Senior VP for digital strategy and licensing Eugene Evans has confirmed that they are in talks with various developers who are interested in taking on the challenge of creating the next installment of the game.

Evans emphasizes the importance of not rushing the development process in order to ensure that the final product meets the high expectations set by its predecessors. While there is a desire to not make fans wait another quarter-century for a new Baldur’s Gate game, the focus remains on finding the right partner and approach to deliver a product that surpasses the bar set by previous titles in the series.

One aspect that fans may be excited about is the potential return of beloved characters from Baldur’s Gate 3 in future installments. Characters like Astarion, Shadowheart, and Karlach are considered part of D&D canon, and there is hope that they could make a reappearance in upcoming games. While nothing is confirmed, the possibility of seeing these characters again is certainly intriguing for long-time fans of the series.

The lengthy development process of Baldur’s Gate 3, which spent years in early access before its full release, suggests that quality takes precedence over speed when it comes to creating a new Baldur’s Gate game. Evans and his team are committed to taking the necessary time to ensure that the future of Baldur’s Gate is in good hands and that fans will be satisfied with the end result.

As discussions continue and plans start to take shape, it’s clear that the future of Baldur’s Gate is in good hands with Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro at the helm. While there may not be a clear timeline for when the next installment will be released, the dedication to delivering a quality product that lives up to the legacy of the series is evident. Fans of Baldur’s Gate can rest assured that the franchise is in good hands and that exciting things are on the horizon.
