This is because it's what's best for Larian.

It was a bit of a shocker when Swen Vinke, the big boss at Larian Studios, talked about moving on from the Baldur’s Gate series. Yeah, even with Baldur’s Gate 3’s reviews and sales, they’re looking to explore new genres in the future.

WOTC, not the reason

During a chat at the Game Developers Conference, Vinke talked bout wanting to chase big, bold ideas rather than just adding more to what they’ve already nailed. And hey, for anyone thinking there’s bad blood between Larian Studios and Wizards of the Coast, Vinke made it crystal clear that’s not the case. The decision to part ways is all about following their creative spark.

Baldur’s Gate 3 was a labor of love, a tribute to Larian’s passion for the rich stories. Vinke loved the series, saying it’ll always hold a special place in their hearts. It’s made its mark, leaving a lasting legacy in role-playing games.
