Larian Studio’s Baldur’s Gate 3 has been making giant waves in the video game industry, seamlessly bringing almost every aspect of the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) board game experience to gamers with great success. As the game nears its release for Xbox game consoles and the title is nominated for The Game of the Year 2023, Larian has teased its next big title.
This is a real honor, especially in a year with so many releases. Seeing our little “niche rpg” make such waves is very motivating. I wish I could tell you about our next big game but this is really encouraging us to ensure it pushes many boundaries. I’m very excited about it. https://t.co/b6fBssUF7n

In a post quoted on X calling on votes for The Game Awards, Larian’s founder and CEO Swen Vinke expressed his excitement on sharing about “[Larian’s] next big game.”. What, exactly, are they working on now? No one can say for sure. What we do know is that Larian plans to return to the world of Rivellon (Divinity) after a long break following the release of Baldur’s Gate 3.
The post also called on Xbox fans and fans of physical media to stay tuned for a formal announcement of the release of Baldur’s Gate 3 on the platform.
The success of Baldur’s Gate 3 has been monumental. The game has been nominated for multiple categories aside from Game of the Year. The nominations include Best Game Direction, Narrative, Score And Music, and RPG, among others.
Commenting on the release of Baldur’s Gate 3 and returning to the world of Divinity, Vinke said that the developers in Larian “will need to refresh [themselves] creatively.”. 400 developers have worked on Baldur’s Gate 3 and will return to work on a new title once they have taken their break.
The success and quality of Balder’s Gate 3 has notably raised the bar for CRPGs and RPGs in general. It was so good that other game developers have called the game’s quality “an anomaly”. As Xbox fans await the release of the game on their favourite platform, fans of Larian Studios will need to wait even longer for their next big title.
