Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox Splitscreen Feature Still in Discussion

Microsoft has officially announced that the long-anticipated RPG Baldur’s Gate 3, will launch on Xbox later this year. This comes after the game’s successful PS5 release and a massive patch that brought over 1,000 fixes across all platforms.

Larian Studios has faced challenges bringing the game to Microsoft’s console, primarily due to difficulties optimizing split-screen co-op for the Xbox Series S. This feature, considered crucial by Larian, will be absent in the Series S version at launch. However, Microsoft assures that efforts are underway to introduce split-screen support post-launch.

Despite the hurdles, Microsoft and Larian remain committed to ensuring an optimal gaming experience. Recent tweets reveal that the two are “thrilled” about the game’s impending release and are “continuing to work to explore the addition of split-screen on Series S post-launch.

One of the significant highlights of Baldur’s Gate 3 is its cross-save functionality, allowing gamers to pick up where they left off across different platforms. The game is currently available on PC and is set to launch for PS5 on September 6.

The arrival of Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox is undoubtedly a significant milestone for both Microsoft and Larian Studios. While split-screen support remains a topic of discussion, it is clear that efforts are being made to deliver the complete experience to all players.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. Currently stuck in WoW with high M+ keys, Tarkov, a bit of Gray Zone Warfare, Dota 2, and CS2. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC. If you need anything, feel free to contact me on X!
