I mean Baldur's Gate is an obvious location and it's a lot bigger now then in BG1&2 time. But having learned how big they originally intended DOS2 (which was supposed to cover a human, dwarf, lizard, elf, and undead kingdoms), but they had to cut heavily, it suggests that BG3 with over 3 times the developers and growing with another studio in Malaysia, could achieve what Larian had originally wanted to do size wise.

To compare that would be like the whole Swordcoast, plus hypothetically trips to other regions like Calimshan, Evermeet, Underdark, Mulhorand, and who knows what else.

im thinking they simply upped the ante in graphics.
Larian always overshoots in size and then downscales, i think its gonna be OS2 sized.

Still impossible with their team size, that would require a team of over 1000 people which is quite normal for MMOs these days. At the moment their team is still smaller than most AAA games which usually havé 500+ peope working on them.

The aim is to have a comparable amount of content / playtime as D:OS 2. That is hard to judge while the game is still being developed, though.

"The game we're making, Baldur's Gate 3, is an insanely big game. It's super complex for us to develop for the players and it's a really complex game to make. Given the size of it, we all need the help we can get to make it"

"Swen: We started out with the idea of how large we're going to be but we're always wrong. I mean with Baldur's Gate 3, we've made a lot of iterations but it's always the same mistake and it’s bigger than we expected. It's because we take things to the next level and decide many options like, "Wouldn't that be cool, wouldn't those be cool, yeah?" (laughs)."

It's bigger then expected. Given that it was likely expected to be bigger then DOS2 to begin with (DOS2 was originally supposed to only have 200,000 words and ended up with over 1 millions words), I think this game is going to be bigger in every way then people expect.
