    Minsc is exactly the type of character that is made for le wacky xD Larian "humour". You can bet your life that he's in. Probably as a main character.

    I'm hoping this is BG3. Mostly because I want to see the uproar and hot takes on the Codex.

    Yeah, I agree. I'm pretty sure Xzar and Montaron are dead now, which is unfortunate because they're my other favorite characters, but I love how the majority of the characters in BG1 are just homeless psychopaths. Even the people who are reasonably well put together, like Xan and Coran, are still utterly insane. We don't want people with tragic backstories who need a shrink, we want homeless psychopaths looking for fun and adventure.

    I doubt we will see Coran or Tiax, since Coran might get killed by the Werewolve lover and Tiax gets killed by Irenecus.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    Now that the secret is set to be revealed, what I'm really looking forward to is the inevitable MCA shilling for Larian while passive aggressively omitting or throwing shade at Obsidian. @LarAtLarian #BaldursGate3

    Oh, that's right, he was in Spellhold, wasn't he? What a bummer.

    What happens to Safana? She was also part of that Coran quest too, right? Does she die? I really liked her. I know she was part of the Dragonspear expansion, but I don't remember what she did in it and I never completed it.

    Even if the announcement is for BG3 and it coincides with that time of the month for the average Codexian - I think most people (like me) will just shrug their shoulders and continue to monitor the decline of civilisation. My childhood and all the things I still love have been so perverted at this point, that they're no longer recognisable as the things I love. It's like that girl you grew up with that you thought you'd marry and then (through no fault of your own) she became a raging lesbian. Different paths and all that.

    Bonus points it they heavily market his involvement (again) while he only writes the backstory for 1 character and nothing else (again). MCA is becoming just a sticker you slap on your game. FEATURING WRITING FROM MCA*!

    I'd guess this will be turn-based, assuming it will have co-op system like D:OS.

    I'd seen it happen to others, but this is actually the first time my childhood is disentombed, then dragged into the public square so as to be furiously sodomized by an impromptu assembly of sweaty Belgian men drunk on Trappist ale, expelling what's left of last night's mitraillette as they sway back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…

    Safana dies by the Werewolve lady, then Coran snaps at her and he might end up getting killed.

    Only in the Codex would people get frustrated that the best cRPG company is working on (one of)the biggest cRPG franchise

    Yes but there's bound to be shitposting ahead on some level. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But enough of Codexians will buy it and a few will like it or something (maybe vice versa, but doubtful) and the rest of the Codex with swarm them with retadred ratings and butthurt will ensue.
