Baldur’s Gate 3 was initially released to Steam and the Epic Games Store in October 2020 as an early access game. Anyone who wanted to check out the starting area of the game would pay the total price for the title and explore this section. Once you reached the end of the first area, the early access game would end, and you could go no further. When can we expect the exact release date of Baldur’s Gate 3?

While the game released to early access in October 2020, Covid-19 has not done the development team, Larian Studios, any favors. Leading up to the early access release, the team had to push it back several times, and while they originally wanted to do it sooner, October 2020 was the best time to do that. Fast forward to now, the team is still working on the overall content of Baldur’s Gate 3, and in Community Update 15, Larian Studios revealed they are targeting early 2023 as an expected released date.

We initially speculated that the team would be aiming for early 2022 or even during the summer, but it looks like Larian Studios wants to take a bit more time with all of the classes and features in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you’re waiting to jump into the game until the full release to check out the entire game in one go, it looks like you’ll have to wait a little bit longer.
