Larian Studios has clarified why it left the Xbox variations of Baldur’s Gate 3 off the listing yesterday when it introduced an August 31 launch date for the sport on PS5, PC, Mac, and GeForce Now.

“We have run into some technical points in creating the Xbox port which have stopped us feeling 100% assured in asserting it till we’re sure we have discovered the correct options – particularly, we have been unable to get split-screen co-op to work to the identical commonplace on each Xbox Collection X and S, which is a requirement for us to ship.”
The studio went on to specify that there isn’t any platform exclusivity deal stopping it from launching Baldur’s Gate 3 alongside the opposite variations ought to the technical points be resolved in time.
“If and after we do announce additional platforms, we need to be sure every model lives as much as our requirements and expectations,” Larian added.
