Larian teases Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox and physical release news this week

Larian Studios has teased plans to announce an Xbox Series X/S release date for Baldur’s Gate 3 and a physical edition of the game.

Earlier on Monday, the game was nominated for eight prizes at December’s The Game Awardsthe joint most alongside Alan Wake 2.

As part of a larger message responding to the news, Larian signed off: “Xbox fans, and fans of physical media, watch this space for a formal announcement. It’s going to be a busy week 👀”

Baldur’s Gate 3 was released for PC in August and for PS5 and Mac the following month. Currently, it’s only available digitally.

The game’s Xbox release was originally planned for earlier this year but was held up as Larian struggled to get split-screen co-op working to the same standard on both Series X and S.

Following a meeting with Microsoft’s head of gaming in August, Larian CEO Swen Vincke announced that the Xbox version of Baldur’s Gate 3 would arrive later this year after split-screen co-op was removed as a feature on Series S.

Larian had previously said on several occasions that it believed Microsoft required full feature parity the between the Series X and Series S versions of the game.

However, Xbox boss Spencer later suggested that feature parity wasn’t actually a requirement, and that he “doesn’t see a world” where ther Series S has to miss out on certain games.
