Baldur’s Gate 3 has sold more than 10 million copies

Baldur’s Gate 3 has sold over 10 million copies. As a post-release event, this is a huge success for the developer. Michael Douse, the director of publishing at Larian, said that the game attracted “way over 10” million players in a short space of time.

Such a surge in player base speaks for the game itself. Furthermore, Douse said that official mod support is in the works, but there have been some patch issues. Plenty of surprises are coming to Baldur’s Gate 3, and everyone is super excited about it.

We’ll be talking in depth about what our mod support will look like soon. Been working on it since launch. As always, we’ll discuss it in our way with our community. Threats & toxicity against our devs & community teams will only harm the conversation. Please stop that.

This is a game that went from ~2 mil players to way over 10 in a very short space of time, so it’s natural the conversation becomes muddier and complex. But in order to maintain the same level of dialogue, we need people to understand that these conversations take time.

99.9% of our community are the absolute best and it’s because of them – thankfully – that my community team persevere. But I suppose it was inevitable that when you have a city, a few bad eggs will start a fire.

Until then, BG3 does not yet have mod support. Don’t get angry at mod authors, support teams, community or developers. Our focus is to patch the game while working on future mod support. I understand why it’s frustrating, so what we all need to do is focus on that future.

Next week I’ll have a discussion about community moderation with our comms teams and restate our desire for continued closeness with our communities & updates based on when and what we can say. But we are working too hard for this to proliferate:

To finish, again, we can only be close if we can work close. If we cannot do that, and we have to draw distance, it’ll really suck for everyone, especially us & definitely you. Please help us to work for the greater good of the millions of people who are involved & chill.

A huge fan of puzzlers. Would love to experience the world and takedown on every single and upcoming game title. In the free time love to sing, follow recent game rumors and try to decrypt them in the best possible way.
