Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3 is one week away from leaving Steam Early Access and launching on PC. It’s a massive role-playing game and one of this year’s biggest releases. However, as big of a deal as it is, Divinity: Original Sin is what got the developer this far. So the question is: Will Larian ever return to the series?
Speaking to IGN, Larian CEO Swen Vincke confirmed that the team will return to it at “some point”, but not before the team takes a break after Baldur’s Gate 3.
“It’s [Divinity: Original Sin] our universe we built, so we’re definitely gonna get back there at some point. We will get back there at some point. We’ll first finish this one [Baldur’s Gate 3] now and then take a break because we will need to refresh ourselves creatively also.
“You’re seeing 400 developers putting their heart and souls into this. You’re getting the best of them and their craft into this game. And so I can tell you, it’s quite a thing.”
The last major title in the series is Divinity: Original Sin 2, which was first released for PC in 2017 after spending a year in early access. It received extensive critical acclaim (check out our review), with many considering it one of the best RPGs ever. The Definitive Edition would arrive for PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2018, adding new content and quests before it arrived on Nintendo Switch in 2019.
