D&D General Hasbro Is Looking For Partners For Baldur's Gate 4

Sequel is still "very much on the cards".

Last month, Baldur's Gate 3 developer Larion Studios revealed that it was 'elated' not to be working on further D&D video games, expansions, or DLC.

However, Wizard of the Coast's Eugene Evans says that a sequel is still "very much on the cards". Evans is Senior vice president of Digital Strategy and Licensing for Hasbro and WotC, and was talking in an interview with PC Gamer.

“We’re now talking to lots of partners and being approached by a lot of partners who are embracing the challenge of, what does the future of the Baldur’s Gate franchise look like? So we certainly hope that it’s not another 25 years, as it was from Baldur’s Gate 2 to 3, before we answer that. But we’re going to take our time and find the right partner, the right approach, and the right product that could represent the future of Baldur’s Gate. We take that very, very seriously, as we do with all of our decisions around our portfolio. We don’t rush into decisions as to who to partner with on products or what products we should be considering.”

Fans of the characters, such as Shadowheart and Astarian, created by Larion and introduced in BG3 will be pleased to know that they are now owned by WotC, meaning that it's not impossible that they would show up in any sequels. Evans said "Larian created a much loved cast of characters, who were even celebrated by their nominations, the voice actors behind them and the talent behind them was celebrated at the [BAFTAS]...And they are now essentially part of D&D canon."

FR has enjoyed a better life thanks its creator always worked with TSR+WotC, and also thanks videogames like Baldur's Gate and Newerwinter Night.

Not all the D&D videogames should ba BG clones.

* How would be a fantasy mash-up of A-Team in Eberron?
 





Faerun has always been the most interesting setting, as shown by its countless novels, video games, MtG sets, movie, etc...
I’m honestly not sure if you’re being facetious here! 😂

But Faerun is a such a big and diverse setting, that as a writer or game dev or DM, if you can’t do anything interesting with it, that’s on you rather than in the setting!

Faerun’s problem is that WotC uses it as a default Genericland, rather than diving deep into the aspects of its lore that make it unique and distinctive.

McDonald's is the most interesting restaurant, as shown by its many outlets.

What an odd thing to say. 'Quantity' and 'quality' are spelled differently deliberately. On account of being different words which mean different things.
