Will it be on Xbox?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently on PC and heading to Mac and PS5 in a couple of weeks on September 6, 2023. But those within the Microsoft family of Xbox are wanting to know when they get to experience the game. There is both good news and bad news for players on the console.

While Larian Studios looks to bring the game to the next-generation Xbox Series X/S, a specific release date for the title has not been revealed, in fact, the opposite, unfortunately. Larian Studios’ Director of Publishing, Michael Douse has said that technical issues have caused the game to be delayed on Xbox and it won’t be released until they iron them out. So until more details emerge on the development progress for that version, it is not heading to Xbox in 2023.
