It would be cool...if it were developed by BioWare.

I had heard some news that Black Isle was working on Baldurs Gate 3, but with the death of Black Isle I doubt we'll ever see it or Fallout 3. :(

Time to cite the Throne of Bhaal box:

"Continue the epic saga to its ultimate conclusion"

"Complete the compelling saga..."

"In the Final Chapter of the Bhaal saga"


and so on...

There has been rumor of BG like games, which would sort of be BG3, but BioWare isn't doing it and black Isle is dead. Maybe someone would get hold of the BG licence and do a new BG game, but it would never be a true BG game. The BG series end with Throne of Bhaal. Period.

Now I'd love to see more games like it, but I hope they let the Baldur's Gate brand rest in peace.
You shouldn't ask yourself such worthless questions. Aim higher. Try this: why am I here? Why do I exist, and what is my purpose in this universe?

It couldn't have been said any better.  I fully agree.

And two years from now, on the box for Balduer's Gate 3:

"After Bhaal travels back in time with his Time Machine of Armageddon to kill the heroes when they were wee babies our heroes from the alternate dimension must regroup and save the future!"

I get it! They are making a hack 'n slash game based on the award-winning™ Baldur's Gate- series exclusively for...Commodore-64! Whoopee!

ARGH!

I do hope he means BG: DA3. The original BG brand should rest. Well, as long as it's a completely new story (building on the events of the original), I can live with it. It's sad, but I can't turn down a good RPG ;)

As for NWN2, BioWare has expressed interest, but not more. I wonder if this means they've decided to do it. Hopefully without relying on promises by Borland this time....

Hmm, believe it or not but that mod sounds like it could turn it out to be quite fun. I'm getting pretty tired of fantasy settings so a more modern setting would be great for me and I'm kinda curious how they'll make guns work in the NWN engine.
