At the start of the year, he thought he had discovered the next big star in the video game sky with Hogwarts Legacy. But then came the final release of Baldur’s Gate 3 at the beginning of August, which went much better. Because on Metacritic, the score for nearly 50 reviews is 96, while the user score is 9.2. On Steam, the latest positive reviews are at 96 percent – so Baldur’s Gate 3 can certainly be counted among the most popular games of all time.
Still stunned, Larian’s boss is ready for more
This is also the opinion of PC Gamer magazine, which according to its statements gave a 97 rating to the game – Baldur’s Gate 3 – for the first time in 16 years. CEO Larian Swen Wincke took this test as an opportunity to publicly express his thoughts on success. As he writes on Twitter:
So proud of my team – none of us can believe this is actually happening. But the best part about all of this is that we can keep making games like this. Yes, it’s risky and ambitious and sometimes things go wrong, but the studio is built. Bg3’s reception shows that There is a place for this kind of game. I hope we get more of it.”
There’s positive feedback from the comments on Twitter, and a fellow developer from CD Projekt RED has also spoken out. The narrative director of The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077, Philip Weber, has left his congratulations and praises to Swen Wincke and Larian Studios. If, says the CEO, developers succeed in releasing more games or RPGs on the level of Baldur’s Gate 3, the Larian Studios name will likely be inextricably linked to the seal of quality among gamers and also to the interest of major publishers in taking a wake.
