Larian Discusses Possible Baldur’s Gate 3 Nintendo Switch Port

When Larian Studios, the very same team that gave us Divinity: Original Sin, announced they were taking over Baldur’s Gate fo a third entry into the franchise, RPG fans were more than a little excited. Being such a huge reveal and from a studio we didn’t see this coming from, it’s understandable that long-time fans would be clamoring to learn more about possible franchise expansion – namely a possible Baldur’s Gate 3 Nintendo Switch port.

In a recent interview with our friends over at IGN, Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke wanted to address the most recent rumors of a possible Switch. The good news? His response wasn’t a hard no. The bad news? It wasn’t a hard yes either.

“I honestly don’t know,” Vincke said. “I don’t know what the next Switches are gonna look like. On this particular Switch, that might be a bit problematic. There are quite a lot of upgrades that have been done on BG3, so I think it would be very, very hard.

“But then again, never say never. You never know. Maybe we’ll figure out some magic trick and it’ll work. I just hope personally as a fan the next Switch will have triple the power and triple the battery life. It’s an amazing device. I just hope it has a very long life with lots of upgrades that we can keep on playing all the games we’re playing on other consoles when we’re on the go.”

Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date at this time, though we do know it’s not slated for a 2019 release. But honestly? We’ve waited so long for an official Baldur’s Gate 3, I’d rather weight a little bit longer to ensure that it’s done right. If anyone can, it’s absolutely Larian.
