Larian Studios Is Officially Done With The Baldur’s Gate Series

Just like that, Larian Studios is done with not just Baldur’s Gate 3, its smash hit 2023 roleplaying game, but with the franchise altogether. And I do mean done, as studio founder Swen Vincke said during a talk at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) that the team is moving on from the series.

As reported by IGN, Vincke said during a March 21 GDC talk that Larian Studios isn’t working on an expansion to Baldur’s Gate 3 or a follow-up to the Dungeons & Dragons-inspired RPG. Instead, according to Vincke, the studio is planning to pivot to something new entirely. A Larian Studios representative corroborated IGN’s report in an email to Kotaku, sending over the following quote from Vincke’s talk that “sums [the situation] up” pretty well:

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been a success for Larian Studios since it left Early Access in August 2023. It’s reached over 10 million players and won copious trophies, including Game of the Year at the DICE Awards. With this much financial success and critical acclaim surrounding your game, you’d think Larian Studios might keep the momentum going. Instead, the studio is intent on risk-taking and forging new paths. And honestly, I can respect the hell out of that.
