New Baldur’s Gate Could be On the Horizon *UPDATE

New Baldur’s Gate Could be On the Horizon *UPDATE

The Five have been defeated, the Goddess of Murder routed and the Throne of Bhaal conquered but the story of Baldur’s Gate may not be done yet.

Update: There is currently a timer ticking down on baldursgate.com that expires at 12:00pm PST tomorrow. Hopefully some sort of official announcement (like Baldur’s Gate 3 is coming) will release then.

Original: There are a few things that help me to get out of bed every morning. The prospect of a shower, the fact that a new Game of Throne’s season is coming up, and the single, desperate hope that a new Baldur’s Gate game could be a real possibility. Luckily for me, that hope may not be as desperate as I once thought.

By the Throne of Bhaal, let this be Baldur's Gate 3.

Earlier in the week a cryptic, Baldur’s Gate theme song playing website emerged from the depths of the internet. While the website displays nothing more than the Baldur’s Gate logo and a cryptic quote, the website’s source code reveals a little more.

<!– Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine –>

<!– For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory. –>

<!– And then… it returned. Better than it was before. –>

<!– Love is a lie. Only hate endures. –>

A connection has been made between this mysterious website and Beamdog (co-founded by Trent Oster, a former Baldur’s Gate developer). When prodded about the site on the Beamdog forums, Trent Oster made everything clear as mud by saying only “We’re up to something :-)”.

An entirely new installment in the franchise (Baldur’s Gate 3) is, at this point, only wishful thinking. An HD remake, iOS port or some other form of re-release could very well be what all the clues are pointing to. When asked to clarify Oster would only say:

“We’re not related to the Steam complete edition, I can tell you that much. Other than that, we’re hoping to announce something soon.”

We’ll keep you updated as the story progresses.
