Just hoping they don't go on to talk about how excellent their communication will be or how they'll be doing frequent updates to just hop off the map again. This is my first time following their games pre-release, but it hasn't inspired any confidence in me so far.

Same with inXile after the Microsoft acquisition.

Not necessarily a new interview, it does mention Baldur's Gate 3 and WotC's plan about Digital Designs which include games.

This is almost certainly early access(maybe even a Stadia exclusive one) like they did for Original Sin 1+2, there is no way the game is finished this year.
Or this is just Google making up shit to sell their system.

Found this tweet from Swen Vincke. Could it be a screen pic from BG3?

Swen tweeted me back when I asked him about the rumored release.

I tweeted him this and you can find his reply below mine.

Larian denied developing BG3 way back when rumors to that effect were being floated so that guy has very little credibility with me.

You can hardly expect the man to break an NDA with the company that is letting him produce the game of his dreams...

It is also entirely possible to honestly say you are not working on something that you have gotten the right to do so. Other than the initial discussions, D:OS 2 was the focus of development for some time, and there were a few updates out for the DE before the bulk of people started moving over to BG3. Fallen Heroes was also worked on for some time internally before we partnered with Logic Artists to continue development.

I distinctly remember the denial being issued sometime after this tweet went live:
https://twitter.com/BrianFargo/status/1047967566168174592
You'll note that he is explicitly referring to development as opposed to holding the rights to a particular game.
I understand more rumors had been circulating prior to Brian's bombshell. I'm not going to call anyone a liar for lack of immediate insight but I find the discrepancy in accounts of that time frame interesting.

Excerpt from GameRant's article on the denial (Source: https://gamerant.com/baldurs-gate-3-development-rumor/):
Quote
Following the online hearsay about Baldur's Gate 3 being developed by the Divinity: Original Sin team, Larian Studios went on to deny the rumor, and then added that it hasn't even bought any IP. As stated by the Belgian developer, it is going to continue to work on Divinity, as well as its recently announced project code named "Gustav", which the studio will officially reveal once it's good and ready to do so.

I'm not sure your denial actually implied that but I'm having a hard time digging it up. I might try again later.

This person will be interviewing Larian about Baldur's Gate 3 and is asking the community what sort of questions they want asked.

A short Q&A of the CM of Larian in Reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/user/Raze_Larian/

It will not be necessary to have played BG 1&2. Like the Divinity series, any story or lore necessary for the game will be included; hypothetically there could be some minor references or easter eggs that people who have played the earlier games could notice, which a new player would miss.

We are aiming for a similar amount of content as D:OS 2, so presumably 50 to 100+ hours, depending on playstyle and difficulty level.

it was revealed that Baldur’s Gate 3 is scheduled for Early Access later this year, so players will be stepping into the world of mind flayers and Minsc a lot sooner than you might have thought

thought gaming journalist has mentioned early access on steam? if only on stadia exclusively that's a really bummer. also.. going for early access really kills the hype for me.

Some journalists made a mistake or thought that early access automatically means Steam.
The audio from the meeting where early access was mentioned is online and they don't talk about Steam at all.
