The Wizards of the Coast and Larian Studios were pleased with Baldurs Gate 3’s success

Published on


It seems like a little over one month has passed since the release of Baldurs Gate 3, but it has gotten better. Larian Studios hasn’t revealed how many copies of the game has sold yet, but it should be a lot more generous for Larian and Wizards of the Coast, the Hasbro subsidiary that owns the rights of the Dungeons & Dragons, to be pleased with the game’s success.

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro’s CEO Cynthia Williams confirmed that Baldurs Gate 3 was a commercial success, but again didn’t specify what that means for the quantity of units sold. Well, at least the game was done against everybody’s expectations.

We were very happy with their selling, and Larian is very happy with their selling, Williams said. There are many reasons for successful commercial success, but now everyone is happy because we are happy.

Larian is a large independent studio that has had three years to publicly test Baldurs Gate 3 and make changes to the game based on feedback, but which doesn’t detract from its efforts. That makes the games successful even more impressive, as it’s very easy to lose relevance years after the announcement.

The Larian Studios is a great partner with Wizards of the Coast and is responsible for their high-quality roleplaying work. “They create a lot of the CRPGs and much more deep-playing games,” said Hasbro director Tim Fields. Their history as a studio is incredible. They gave love to the games they were creating, and gave the entire world a unified interpretation of the rules and the world of Dungeons and Dragons. We like to work with partners like Larian.

He added that the company is happy working with the world’s biggest game maker, regardless of if they are public or private.

Wizards would like to talk to teams with great game ideas that would benefit from being part of Hasbros.

Only hope that it will result from Larians efforts with a concrete number when the baldurs Gate 3 is released on all planned platforms.
