In a recent announcement by Larian Studios, the highly anticipated release of Baldur's Gate 3 for Xbox consoles has been delayed, much to the disappointment of eager fans. Originally slated for a late summer launch, the game's release on Xbox has now been pushed back to early 2024.
The decision to delay the Xbox console release of Baldur's Gate 3 was attributed to the developer's commitment to ensuring a polished and seamless gameplay experience for players on the platform. Larian Studios cited technical optimization as the primary reason for the postponement. Fingers are pointing specifically to the Xbox Series S.
"We understand that fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox consoles, and we share in that excitement," said Swen Vincke, CEO of Larian Studios. "However, we believe that taking the time to properly optimize the game for the Xbox platform will result in a far better experience for players in the long run."
Larian Studios assured fans that the delay would not impact the ongoing development and updates for the PC version of the game. The studio remains committed to providing a seamless and immersive experience for both PC and Xbox players alike. As the team works tirelessly to fine-tune the Xbox version, gamers are encouraged to stay tuned for further updates and announcements.
While the delay may be disappointing, the silver lining is the assurance that Larian Studios is dedicated to delivering the best possible gaming experience for players on the Xbox console. As the months progress and the technical optimization efforts continue, Baldur's Gate 3 fans can look forward to an enhanced and captivating adventure when the game finally arrives on Xbox platforms sometime in early 2024.
