Larian Studios announces delay for Baldur’s Gate 3 Console Physical Edition

Larian Studios has announced a delay in shipping Baldur’s Gate 3 physical edition for consoles, despite the PC version smoothly sailing. However, the Deluxe Edition has hit a roadblock in its arrival on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S platforms, with production issues as the culprit.

The studio took to X to break the news, stating that while the PC Deluxe Editions are already on their way to players. Those looking forward to the console versions will have to wait a bit longer, with shipping expected to happen sometime between April and May.

PC Deluxe Edition are now shipping, with console editions expected to begin shipping between April and May.

We wanted to get the console versions into the hands of players earlier, however, production issues have meant that shipping dates have been pushed back slightly.

Those waiting for their Xbox version will now receive 4 physical discs, rather than the 3 originally planned, so that we can provide the full game as a physical copy.

(Yes, it is that big).

While we don’t expect any further delays, we will continue to keep you updated on when console versions are ready.

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. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. 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.
