Default Rumours of a Baldur's Gate 3 Being Developed

They even have a website Baldur's Gate. I hope this is a lets make Baldur's Gate the same as we did in 2001 with the new technologies we have and continue the story. Not a lets make a console game with a huge name on the front to up sales.

There's speculation that it may be a teaser for Buldur's Gate I or II HD rather than a brand new BG III.

Exactly. I think the most we can hope for is a rerelease of Baldur's Gate with updated graphics. Which actually would be kind of cool.

I realize it isn't quite the same but I did find this.

Doesn't look like there is much progress but I checked the site Gamers Nexus Modders - BGR Mod Team - Gamers Nexus - Your hub for gaming hardware, news, PC builds, and reviews
and they are still working on the mod.

As expected in certain quarters, The Baldur's Gate rumour have turned out to be an Enhanced Edition.

Announcing Baldur?s Gate: Enhanced Edition? Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition News

Quote:
Atari, Wizards of the Coast, and Overhaul Games are pleased to announce work has begun on the Enhanced Edition of Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II.
...
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition™ and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition™ will feature a re-forged version of the Infinity Engine with a variety of modern improvements.
Depending upon price, if I don't give my GoG versions a run soon they might end up never getting played.

I tried to play them but lost interest quickly, don't think I ever got off the first CD. I hated having to baby-sit everyone's gear/inventory/skills/stats/combat-moves ect and felt that kinda ruined the immersion of the story/world. Too many numbers and stats and micro fiddling thrown in my face when really the story should have been put first.

Then again I've always through that D&D was rather flawed. Too much crap bogging down the actual adventuring and role playing. I seem to recall spending most of my tabletop D&D sessions trying to avoid any and all combat because it was so damn slow and boring. I'd have hoped with a computer that wouldn't have been necessary, alas so many people seem to think the numbers are the good parts of RPGs.

I think I'm in a vast minority though, people seem to love stats and numbers, perhaps there's a little accountant in your heart or hearts, but the poet in mine is weeping.
