Hasbro, the parent company of D&D publishing house Wizards of the Coast, announced during the New York Toy Fair that we will be playing Baldur's Gate 3 this year. However, for the time being only in an early access phase.
Google had published a corresponding note a few days ago that the RPG Baldur's Gate 3 2020 would appear. The developer studio Larian then said that the game title was incorrectly named. But there seems to be something about it.
Baldur's Gate 3 will be playable in 2020
As the company Hasbro announced at the New York Toy Fair, the role-playing game Baldur's Gate 3 will start in an early access phase in 2020. So that means we can play the much-anticipated Baldur's Gate sequel later this year – albeit in an early version. The early access phase will take place via Steam. How long this phase lasts and when the "official" release is, Hasbro did not announce. It is quite possible that a longer early access phase is planned.
Hasbro also said that two D&D role-playing games should be released this year: Baldur's Gate 3 (probably as an early access game) and Dark Alliance. By 2025, additional D&D games are to be published each year. Wizards of the Coast, which belongs to Hasbro, explained earlier that there are more games in the works for Dungeons & Dragons.
First, however, the live gameplay reveal of Baldur's Gate 3 is due on February 27 at 9 p.m. Swen Vincke of Larian Studios will play the RPG live with a guest at the PAX East game fair. A question and answer session will then take place and the developers will also present the role-playing game at the Larian stand. So soon we will learn what BG 3 looks like and how it plays.
