With PlayStation being the only initial release console, millions of Xbox user don't have the chance to experience the long awaited title. And developer Studio, Larian Studios, might miss out on a hefty pay day. But will there be an Xbox release in the future?
The short answer is YES. According to the devs there will be an Xbox port in the near future. Larian boss, Swen Vincke, said in an interview with IGN:
If we were to do ultimate parity on all the platforms, we would have to wait I don't know how much time before we would be ready. That's why it's important we release it now, we release it when it's ready on PS5, and we release it when it's ready on Xbox.
So there is some good news for all the Xbox user out there. At the moment there a sadly no further information about a possible Xbox release date, but it will surely take Larian Studios a while to manage the port. It might be still this year, but according to the interview, there are technical difficulties that complicate the whole process.
If the game will be introduced into the Game Pass, when it's released on Xbox, is currently unknown. But many gamers might hope so, since the game has a hefty price tag.
It will be interesting to see the community's reaction to Baldur's Gate 3, once it's released and if there will enough hype created in the Xbox community to keep everybody interested in the port for a later release. In the past, GTA V for example managed exactly this with its PC community.
