Baldur’s Gate 3 has been officially delayed beyond August 2020. 

After being scheduled for an early access release in August, developer Larian Studios has confirmed Baldur’s Gate 3 will be pushed back to an unspecified date. 

The game’s new release date however will be announced on 18th August at a Panel From Hell event, hosted by Geoff Keighley with creators of the title. 

They’re also promising some “big news” at the event outside the release date, which will is scheduled for Tuesday 18th August at 10am PT/6pm BST. 

It doesn’t sound like the release date will be too far off though, describing it as “just around the corner”. 

The delay doesn’t come as a huge surprise however, considering Larian Studios’ Director of Publishing, Michael Douse, recently told players to “be wary” about pre-ordering the title at the moment. 

Baldur’s Gate 3 is the third entry in the hugely popular RPG franchise, based on Dungeons & Dragons tabletop systems. 

Baldur’s Gate 3 will be released on PC and Google Stadia.
