A few weeks ago, Michael Douse, the Director of Publishing at Larian Studios, responded to a fan on Twitter, revealing that the plan for the Xbox release is ‘before the end of the year.’ This indicates that the release date might be a few days after The Game Awards or possibly even on the same day. The anticipation is building, and fans now eagerly await Larian Studios’ preparations for this significant annual event in the gaming world.

Xbox Release of Baldur’s Gate 3

Almost three months since the PC release and nearly two after the PlayStation launch, much of the dust has settled around Baldur’s Gate 3. This highly praised game is a strong contender for game of the year, thanks to its solid story, characters, engaging game mechanics, and strategic combat encounters. Currently, PC and PlayStation users are reaching the game’s climax or planning multiple playthroughs. At the same time, Xbox fans still wonder when they might finally play Baldur’s Gate 3.

The long delay is rooted in Microsoft’s expectations for games released on its console. The company insists that every feature in a game be available on both Xbox Series X and S. Unfortunately, Larian Studios struggled to get the split-screen co-op working on the less powerful Series S. Thankfully, after such a successful release and Xbox fans clamoring for the chance to play, the company finally relented. The game will now come to both Series X and Series S, though without the split-screen co-op on the S machine.
