Baldur’s Gate 3 was easily one of the biggest releases this year. Coming out first on PC and then on PlayStation 5, quite a few RPG players worldwide have had the chance to dive into this game already. But there’s one platform still left without, and that’s Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S console. This game is confirmed for the console platform, but unfortunately, the folks over at Larian Studios had to push the game back a bit to get it ready for the Xbox consoles. As a result, we’re waiting for the studio to give us a release date finally. Today, we’re given an alert as to when a release date announcement will be coming.
While we don’t have a release date yet, the developers over at Larian Studios alerted followers on their X social media account that the game is still on track. Xbox Series X/S players will get the Baldur’s Gate 3 video game this December. However, we won’t get the actual release date for the game until during The Game Awards. A world premiere release date announcement trailer will drop, giving fans the date on which they can start their own thrilling journey. That should give fans an in-depth RPG experience to go through as we head into the holiday season.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped some fans from speculating online. Some are thinking that this announcement is actually going to be a shadow drop release on Xbox Game Pass. That would make for a potential new surge of subscribers or even players resubscribing to the subscription service. But again, that’s just some speculation going on right now online. We don’t have any official announcement yet from either Microsoft or the folks over at Larian Studios suggesting that we’ll get Baldur’s Gate 3 through Xbox Game Pass.
With that said, Baldur’s Gate 3 was a huge winner right out of the gate. Fans of the franchise have already been enjoying it on both PC and PlayStation 5, as we mentioned earlier. Since this game is readily available, we have a Before You Buy video coverage below. You can view our overall impressions of the game when it was released earlier this year. Of course, don’t expect this to be an exact representation of how the game will run on the Xbox Series X/S platform.
