[Update]: Baldur's Gate 3 has now been officially announced!

Despite their goofy nature, Divinity: Original Sin 1 and 2 are some of the best RPGs I've ever played. They feature tons of viable builds to mess around with, plenty of areas to explore and secrets to find, as well as numerous ways to solve every single problem - some of which are so ridiculous I couldn't actually believe the developers thought of them.

With that in mind, I am beyond delighted to say that Larian Studios appear to have now set their sights on the ancient and equally revered RPG series - Baldur's Gate! While the full announcement has not been released just yet, saving and examining the teaser video quite clearly showed that Wizards of the Coast is involved and that this is about Baldur's Gate 3. The offending details have since been removed, but it's a little bit too late to hide anything at this point.

What I'm really curious about is how Larian will handle Bladur's Gate 3's combat. Will they use the real-time combat formula of the previous two games, or will they continue to rely on their turn-based combat system that has already proven itself to be extremely popular? Or better yet, will they follow Pillars of Eternity 2 and have both combat systems coexist with each other?

While I would love to know the answers to these and many other questions, I'm afraid we're all going to have to wait until the full announcement arrives to finally learn a little bit more about Baldur's Gate 3. On the positive side, E3 is just around the corner, so chances are we'll get more information quite soon!

Once that happens, I'll make sure to let you know!
