Larian Studios shocks fans by not planning any Baldur’s Gate 3 DLC or expansions, with no Baldur’s Gate 4 in sight. Time for something new!

During a panel at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) today, the founder of Larian Studios, Swen Vincke, made a surprising announcement. He revealed that the developer has no plans to release expansions or DLC for Baldur’s Gate 3, nor are they working on a Baldur’s Gate 4. Instead, Vincke stated that Larian will be moving away from Dungeons & Dragons altogether to focus on developing something entirely new, leaving the Baldur’s Gate IP in the hands of publisher Wizards of the Coast.

This decision comes as a shock to many fans, especially considering the success of Baldur’s Gate 3. While there were speculations about possible DLC or expansions, Larian has clarified that they will continue to release patches and updates for the game before taking a break to determine their next project. Despite previous discussions about potential DLC, the developer is now focusing on delivering a complete experience with Baldur’s Gate 3.

Although Larian has not confirmed any future Baldur’s Gate 3 content, they have been actively adding new features and content to the game since its launch. The physical edition of Baldur’s Gate 3 even comes on four disks due to its size. The developers are also working on implementing robust mod support, allowing players to customize the game according to their preferences.

Before working on Baldur’s Gate 3, Larian Studios was known for their work on the Divinity series. It is possible that their next project could be related to the Divinity franchise, as hinted by Vincke in a previous interview. While the future of Baldur’s Gate 4 remains uncertain, it is evident that the property has been immensely successful, generating significant revenue for Hasbro, the owner of Wizards of the Coast.

Overall, Larian’s decision to move away from Baldur’s Gate 3 and focus on new ventures marks an exciting chapter for the studio. Fans can look forward to potential developments in the Divinity series and other future projects from Larian Studios.
