Stray Gods Delayed To Avoid Baldur's Gate 3's Launch On PC

Both games originally would launch on the same day.


Summerfall Studios announced that it is pushing back the release of Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical to August 10 in order to not launch on the same day as Baldur's Gate 3 on PC.

In a statement on Twitter, Summerfall Studios said, "We want everyone to have ample space to check out Stray Gods when it launches. Baldur's Gate 3 is hotly anticipated (by us, too!) and we want to give our fans room to celebrate Stray Gods."

The studio continued, "We also want everyone to be able to play on their preferred device at launch. This is a huge undertaking for any team, let alone an indie shipping its first title. This extra week allows us to have performance parity as close as possible, across every platform."

Stray Gods once seemed safe from clashing with Larian's RPG. It was supposed to be released on August 3 for PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. However, Larian Studios announced in June that it would push up Baldur's Gate 3's launch to August 3 on PC while it would still launch for PS5 on September 6.
