Baldur's Gate 3 is still expected to arrive on the Xbox Series X and Series S before the end of 2023. The team at Larian Studios has already reassured Xbox fans on a number of separate occasions, and the latest update comes from studio founder and CEO Swen Vincke.

In a post on social media, Vincke gave a brief Xbox project update - noting how this version of the game was being "actively playtested" and was "still on schedule for this year". The plan is to announce an "exact release date" when the team is "sure" it's ready to launch.

This follows an update from Larian's Director of Publishing last month, who mentioned how the game was also going to get a release on the Xbox "before the end of the year".

The original Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox delays are tied to Series S technical hurdles, with the studio making the decision to drop splitscreen co-op on Series S for the launch. The plan now is to bring this mode to the game post-launch.
