The recently announced Baldur’s Gate remake may eventually lead to an entirely new entry to the loved franchise; “Baldur’s Gate 3 has been our long term goal,” Cameron Tofer, co-founder of developer Beamdog, tells GameSpy. However: “We have a lot of things to put in place before such a project can be launched.”
He clarifies: “So currently there is no such project but that’s the one we want to do. Our thoughts have been that Enhanced Edition for BG 1 and 2 just make sense before there’s any Baldur’s Gate 3.”
“We’re totally thinking Kickstarter. It just makes so much sense and solves so many problems. I think what Brian [Fargo] is doing with Wasteland is very interesting.”
Wasteland 2‘s Kickstarter campaign, while still a month to go, reached its goal in a matter of days. It’ll be out next October.
As for Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition, look for it this summer. More details in the announcement here.
