However, there are quite a few technical difficulties that the Larian Studio ran across. While Vincke was happy to announce that they have found the solutions that allow them to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox release till the end of the year, they still had some things to work towards. Everything considered, the studio had to decide to not feature Split Screen Co-op for Xbox Series S going forward. Series S, is the less powerful of the two Xbox systems.
As mentioned before, the specific release date has yet to be announced by the developer studio and it will take some time for them to figure out everything after the playtest. With that being said, Baldur’s Gate 3 will be released with all the improvements and will also include cross-save progression between Xbox and Steam.
Players will have to wait for the official confirmations for which they can follow Larian Studios on Twitter. If everything goes according to the game plan, you can expect the announcement to be around mid-November or early December.
