Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox Release: Everything We Know So Far

Ready for Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox? We are too. The game has proven one of the biggest hits of 2023 on PC and PlayStation 5 so far, and it'll soon be coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S as well.

The question is, when will Baldur's Gate 3 actually release on Xbox? Here's what we know so far:

Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox Release Date

Baldur's Gate 3 is scheduled to release on Xbox at some point after December 6th, 2023.

This was confirmed by Larian Studios in a recent message on Twitter:

""Xbox players, we hear you’re looking for more news on Baldur’s Gate 3. The game is on track for a December release."

Baldur's Gate 3's Xbox release date will be announced at The Game Awards 2023 on December 7th.

Is Baldur's Gate 3 Coming To Xbox Game Pass?

It has yet to be confirmed whether Baldur's Gate 3 will be coming to Xbox Game Pass or not.

Baldur's Gate 3 Series X & Series S Differences

As you've probably heard by now, developer Larian Studios has suffered a lot of difficulties in getting Baldur's Gate 3 to run properly on Xbox Series S. As a result, the local co-op feature isn't going to be implemented at launch in the Series S version, although Larian hopes to add it back in eventually.

The upside is that BG3 can now launch on Xbox in 2023... before that, it was targeting 2024!

Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox One Version?

There are no signs of an Xbox One version of Baldur's Gate 3. Considering that the Xbox Series S version has run into development issues, it seems a safe bet to suggest it'll never arrive on Xbox One natively.

We'll keep updating this guide with any information we get about Baldur's Gate 3's Xbox release, but the key takeaway is that we shouldn't be waiting very long at all to get our hands on it. Start saving those Microsoft Rewards points!
