Sven Vinka: After Baldur’s Gate 3, Larian “must” continue Divinity: Original Sin

Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the most anticipated role -playing games of 2023, but fans of the previous, very beloved developers of the Larian series Divinity: Original Sin are wondering if its history will continue. Answer: Continuation of Divinity: Original Sin will definitely take place, but you should not hold your breath in anticipation of the announcement.

In an interview with IGN Boss, Larian, Swen Vincke, confirmed that the studio will return to the world of Divinity: Original Sin and will continue its history, but not earlier than the employees take a well -deserved break after the release of Baldur’s Gate 3 next month.

This is our own universe, which we created, so we will definitely return there at some point. We will definitely return there at some point. First we finish this game Baldur’s Gate 3, and then take a break, because we will need to be creatively updated. You see how 400 developers put their heart and soul into this game. And I can say that it’s very cool.

Larian Belgian Studio began its series Divinity in 2002 with Divine Divinity. In 2004, the game Beyond Divinity was released, and in 2009 – Divinity 2. Divinity: Original Sin in 2014, but it was Divinity: Original Sin 2 brought Larian to the leaders, providing millionth sales and general recognition of critics. It was followed by ports and Definitive Edition, in which thousands of people continue to play years.

Baldur’s Gate 3, which Larian is developing under the license of the owner of Dungeons & Wizards of the Coast Dragons will be released in August 2023, six years after Divinity: Original Sin 2. If Larian continues to work on Divinity: Original Sin 3, it is quite possible that years will pass before we see or hear anything about it, not to mention playing it.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is a large -scale role -playing game with the creators of the Divinity series: Original Sin. Larian announced the postponement of the release date of the version for the PC for a month in advance, from August 31 to August 3 to avoid a collision with Bethesda Starfield in early September. The version for PlayStation 5, meanwhile, is slightly delayed until September 6, and the versions for Xbox Series X and S are left without the release date (more about the delay of Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox here).

In an interview, Winka said that, according to the developers, the standard passage of Baldur’s Gate 3 takes from 75 to 100 hours. However, players who want "to do everything", should count on doubling this figure.
