Baldur’s Gate remake announced, not being developed by BioWare

Posted By | On 16th, Mar. 2012

After plenty of rumours and speculations, the announcement has finally been made- Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2- the classic BioWare PC RPGs- are being remade.

However, they won’t be developed by BioWare. Developer Beamdog- originally founded by ex-BioWare employees who did work on the Baldur games- is working on these remakes. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is releasing this Summer, and Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition will be coming out later this year.

“Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition will feature a re-forged version of the Infinity Engine with a variety of modern improvements,” reads the official blurb of the games on their teaser site.

“We have the original source code and are doing a significant update,” a Beamdog representative told Joystiq. The remakes will have “new and original content” too. “It’s being lovingly crafted in the spirit of the original with the help of some of the original developers,” the rep said about the new content.

Beamdog also released a re-release of MDK2, the BioWare developed title, last year. So they’re pretty experienced with old BioWare games. We’re guessing these Enhanced Editions will have all the expansion packs of the two games and upgraded visuals, and some extra content, as the rep mentioned.

No platforms, exact release date or any other info on the game have been announced yet. Stay tuned to GB for more info.
