Baldur’s Gate 3 is confirmed to launch this year on Xbox after uncertainty of its release date due to issues with the game running splitscreen on the Series S version of the game.
Super happy to confirm that after meeting @XboxP3 yesterday, we’ve found a solution that allows us to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 to Xbox players this year still, something we’ve been working towards for quite some time.— Swen Vincke @where? (@LarAtLarian) August 24, 2023
All improvements will be there, with split-screen coop on Series X. Series S will not feature split-screen coop, but will also include cross-save progression between Steam and Xbox Series.— Swen Vincke @where? (@LarAtLarian) August 24, 2023
Larian head Swen Vincke confirms that the game will not have splitscreen co-op on Series S, which seems like a compromise that had to be met to get the game ready for launch this year.
