Baldur’s Gate 3 Will Never Be Available On Game Pass


“There’s a fair price to be paid”

Baldur’s Gate 3 developer Larian decided “from the get-go” that the massive RPG would not be available on Xbox or PC Game Pass, and that will not change.

According to Larian CEO Swen Vincke, who recently spoke with IGN about the possibility of a Game Pass release. “So look, we are in the business of making a game that has a beginning, middle, and an end,” Vincke says. “We made a big game, so I think there’s a fair price to be paid for that, and I think that that is okay.”

Vincke also mentions the straightforward, business model that has helped Baldur’s Gate 3 become a fan favorite. “We don’t charge you any micro-transactions on top of it, so you get what you pay for,” he says. “Up front, it’s a big meaty game. So I think that should be able to exist as it is. This is what allows us to continue making other games.”

Vincke confirms Larian’s plans to “continue to support” Baldur’s Gate 3 through 2024, even as the studio shifts to other projects in the same interview.
