Baldurs Gate

Update: It turns out the Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3 has run into some technical issues during development, which is why it hasn't been announced as of yet. We've covered this story elsewhere on Pure Xbox:

Original story: One of yesterday's biggest 'State of Play' reveals was for Baldur's Gate 3, with Larian Studios' RPG now confirmed to be coming to PlayStation 5. While an Xbox version hasn't been announced yet, our chances of seeing it at some stage have increased somewhat following the reveal.

In a PR statement provided to Push Square, the team confirmed that Larian doesn't have any sort of deal with Sony over PlayStation exclusivity.

"Right now Larian is planning to release Baldur’s Gate 3 for PC, Mac, GeForce NOW and PS5. That said, they don't have exclusivity and will announce support for additional platforms if and when they’re ready."

Meanwhile, the studio's director told fans to "relax" over the team's exclusivity plans.

So, at this stage it seems that launching first on PlayStation is a developer decision, likely down to resource management while the team works on porting the game over. This makes an Xbox version much more likely at some stage, even if not at launch.

If you want to check out the new trailer that accompanied yesterday's PlayStation announcement, we'll drop that down below. And of course, we'll bring the news if Larian announces an Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3. Here's hoping!
