Baldur's Gate 3 Console Ports Not Ruled Out
Baldur's Gate 3 is launching on PC and Stadia first, with the studio focused on those two platforms for now.
Baldur's Gate III is currently only being developed for PC and Google's Stadia, with an early access launch on the former hopefully kicking off this August. Larian Studios' previous title, Divinity: Original Sin 2, eventually arrived on most consoles, including Nintendo Switch, but no such plans are in place for the Baldur's Gate sequel just yet.
As part of Play For All, GameSpot recently got the chance to sit down with Baldur's Gate III creative director Swen Vincke, who said he and his team haven't even tried to run the game on current-gen consoles. Although he didn't rule out ports to consoles in the future, specifically next-gen ones, Vincke says the studio is just focused on PC and Stadia right now.
"Our focus right now is PC and Stadia," Vincke stated. "We're going to first focus very hard on getting those two to work, and then we'll see what happens." You can watch the full interview above.
Baldur's Gate III is a massive project for Larian Studios, which makes the narrow platform focus sensible. Vincke explains during the interview that the early access release planned for August is as large as the entirety of Divinity: Original Sin 2, with the full launch being considerably larger still.
