Baldurs Gate 3 Early Access Delayed Until October 1

Baldurs Gate 3 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated gaming releases of the year for many people and with it set to hit it’s initial early access release on September 30th, we daresay that many of you that date hasn’t been coming quickly enough. If that is the case, however, then I’m afraid we have some good and bad news for you.

Following an official post on the Baldurs Gate 3 Twitter account, the bad news is, the game’s release has officially been delayed. The good news is, they’ve only pushed it back to October 6th.

While the delay will undoubtedly be disappointing new to many, in the post (which you can check out below) the games developer has confirmed that the delay has primarily boiled down to two reasons. Firstly, the game requires just a little more stabilization and secondly, the translations (for localization) haven’t yet been completed. Given the current COVID situation, the latter aspect isn’t surprising in the least!

On the plus side, however, they have confirmed the full and final PC requirements for the game.

What Do We Think?

With the October 6th launch date set to be kept, seemingly come hell or high water, at least the delay has only been for a week and, as such, while undoubtedly a bit of a let down to some, at least Baldurs Gate 3 hasn’t been pushed back significantly.
