    If true, they better make it turn based.

    I think it's very plausible that WotC might have approached them for a D&D game. D:OS 2 is one of the most successful non-AAA RPG and WotC is looking for success in video games after all.

    But Baldur's Gate? I don't think that aligns Swen's vision that well, unless it just means it's an RPG featuring Baldur's Gate/Sword Coast with some nods to the previous games.

    Personally I think they could make a good TB combat, but their writing will be mundane and boring as always and that made me sad when I heard it.

    Every videogame company that acquires a business relationship with WotC is doomed.

    Good night, Sven. We hardly knew ye.

    If true does it mean that it will will use AD&D or it's up to Larian to choose which?

    I'd hazard that WoTC will require that they use 5e.

    If this isn't satire, I'd be highly suspicious just because Larian colour pallet is shall we say, unique.

    I'd rather they make a new series than soil the fading memory of BG2.

    Besides, Irenicus is dead, the BG saga is over.

    Do something new instead.

    Bester is usually drunk around the time of this post. He can't lie while drunk. He also spent most of his life in Belgium.

    It really seems weird of why not just licensing Forgotten Realms itself especially if we assume they are doing drastic changes (TB & 5e hopefully)

  25. Larian's writing is probably the worst thing about their games. For them to try a story heavy franchise like BG would not inspire confidence in me at least.

    citation needed though.
