In addition, the first premium DLC will be available on February 28, 2023 for PC, Playstation 4, and XBox One. The DLC for Nintendo Switch will be available at a later date. This DLC will feature a new companion as well as a new playable class: the ever changing shifter.

… and that ladies and gentlemen is why we are seeing the changes to OGL.

Baldur's Gate 3 hit a million copies sold in like it's first week of EA, not full release even. To WotC WotR is chump change. They are more concerned with Paizo making a deal with say Amazon or Disney for a Golarion show and/or movie, then a midrange video game. I mean WotC actively encouraged Solasta dispite making no money from it.

What it shows is that companies with the goal of creating entertaining products that players will purchase can and will produce profitable products. Wrath of the Righteous is a good product and does a good job of showcasing the Adventure Path for Pathfinder First Edition. I hope they have an Abomination Vaults AP computer game in the works. I would love to buy it.

Unfortunately it looks like Owlcat has abandoned PF for WH40K.

I just have to give Owlcat props for bringing back the name "CRPG!"

I never understood why the "C" got dropped in CRPG and then people started to add "TT" as in "ttRPG" to the RPG hobby that birthed the CRPGs in the first place.

It's like when I told someone I was a gamer for years but when I mentioned D&D, TMNT and White Wolf, they looked at me funny and asked if I had a Playstation.

Brand Name does it again. BG 3 the game, is absolutely terrible, but everyone in the CRPG space knows what 'Baldur's Gate' is. A shame how poorly it was handled.

Opinions vary. I think it is miles better than RTwP nonsense.

I guess I misunderstand your comment then. If you mean in comparison to BG1/2, sure BG3 is different, but thats not what I think BG3 sucks. :D
To be fair I only played about 8 hours when it first dropped and decided to put it aside until full release. But I liked what played. Then again I think the Divinity: OS games are the best CRPGs of the modern era.

It's been 15 years since the last licensed D&D video game product that was actually faithful to the tabletop system (Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir expansion). Every video game past that has been D&D in name only.

We're getting Baldur's Gate 3 this year which will be the 5e system, but 15 years is a really long gap to give opportunity for someone else to slide in. Owlcat Games and Paizo did a great job with these two titles, and I'm glad they stepped in to fill that void.
