Fans of the original and highly popular Baldur’s Gate game and its sequel have all the reasons to be extremely happy today: developer Beamdog confirmed that they game they’ve been working on for quite a while now, codenamed Adventure Y, is actually a brand new Baldur’s Gate game.
On their blog, the developers wrote:
“This year, the eagerly anticipated Adventure Y will finally navigate the dark underground caverns of development and venture out into the Sword Coast. We’ve mentioned before that Adventure Y will be an addition to the Baldur’s Gate line using the Infinity engine, bridging the gap between Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition.”
So unfortunately it’s still not the announcement that we were all expecting or, better said, hoping for: a Baldur’s Gate III game, but at least it’s a new title and not an enhanced edition, so we can consider it the best thing available until BG3 is announced. And since the developers have said that they haven’t started working on it yet, it might be a few years for us to enjoy Adventure Y.
Beamdog also promised that they will properly name the project and give all the details that we need to know sometime in late spring 2015. Can’t wait!
