Baldur's Gate 3's hype is at its peak at the moment. Releasing on August 3 for PC, gamers can soon lock themselves away to their heart's content, leave society behind and live their best life as a wizard or warlock.

Console gamers will have to be a bit more patient as the PlayStation 5 release is set to be over a month later on September 6. But what about the handheld console folk?

Does Baldur's Gate 3 Release On Switch?

Asking about a port to Nintendo Switch isn't asking for too much, is it? It worked with Dark Souls 3, The Witcher 3 and many more – why not with Baldur's Gate 3?

There's disappointing news for Nintendo fans nonetheless: there is no Baldur's Gate 3 release for Nintendo Switch planned at the moment. The developers haven't outright denied a Nintendo Switch port down the line, but right now, only PC and PlayStation 5 gamers will get to play Baldur's Gate 3.

Not to crush your hopes and dreams, but maybe don't hold your breath for a port to Switch. I love Nintendo, I truly do, but the Switch's performance and resolution isn't the best out there – there's no saying that Baldur's Gate 3 would even work on the console without driving players mad.

  • Personally, I'm still going the console route with this one and finally got my PlayStation 5.
