Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
A new Baldur’s Gate game is in development, a new website has teased.
Yesterday a teaser site at BaldursGate.com launched with the series’ trademark skull symbol.
On the website is a quote, from Forgotten Realms prophet Alaundo: “The Lord of Murder shall perish, but in his doom he shall spawn a score of mortal progeny, chaos will be sown by their passage.”
The website also features the stirring theme song and images from the 1998 original.
So, who’s behind this new Baldur’s Gate?
GameBanshee reports the developer is Beamdog, a company co-founded by BioWare veteran Trent Oster. Oster worked on Baldur’s Gate, lead the development of Neverwinter Nights and its expansions, and worked for two years as the Director of Technology and lead the development on BioWare’s Eclipse Engine, which powers Dragon Age. He left BioWare in June 2009.
Beamdog issued a statement confirming an announcement proper is on the way. It does not relate to the rumoured Steam re-releases of the original series.
