Baldur’s Gate III Overhaul Games’ Goal
As we reported last week, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, a remake of PC classics Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II, is being developed in cooperation with Overhaul Games, a studio made up of several veterans of Bioware, the original studio behind the revered RPG franchise.What’s next in store for Overhaul after this project is done? If company COO Cameron Tofer has his way, Baldur’s Gate III of course!“Baldur’s Gate III has been our long-term goal. We have a lot of things to put in place before such a project can be launched. So currently there is no such project but that’s the one we want to do. Our thoughts have been that Enhanced Edition for [Baldur’s Gate] and [Baldur’s Gate II] just make sense before there’s any Baldur’s Gate III.”And how would they go about getting the money together for such an undertaking? Say it with me now… Kickstarter.“We’re totally thinking Kickstarter… It just makes so much sense and solves so many problems. I think what Brain [Fargo] is doing with Wasteland is very interesting.”It sounds like the future of the franchise will hinge first and foremost on whether or not the Enhanced Edition meets sales expectations upon its release, so if you’re eager to see a new adventure along The Sword Coast, the best thing you can do for Overhaul right now is to pick up a copy of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition when it comes out.Ellis Stoneback // Super PolyPixel
