I think a party of 4 is based mostly off what they're comfortable with. Given the Divinity games which also had a party of 4. It would be easier for them to work with in terms of UI and combat balance.

Personally, I find it somewhat annoying to have to keep dismissing companions in camp just to access buffs or crafting of other characters... But hey, at least it isn't Divinity 2 where any non-party members are permenantly killed and thus never accessible (I literally used a mod for party size just to bypass this particular event, even if my first playthrough was just me and my waifu (And her demon))

In terms of having higher party limit, it would take more work in order to balance it (Be it a limit of 6 or uncapped), both for regular play and also when attempting to allow for Dark Urge type solo play (Bearing in mind that Divinity specifically also had the Lone Wolf skill to help enable solo/duo play so even a party of 4 is taking more effort to balance without such power enhancements)

The amount of work and overall gameplay feel likely played a large part in their decision to limit parties to 4 members, much like their decision to cap levels off at 12 instead of 20.

It's interesting to note that other similar games such as Pillars of Eternity and Pathfinder have a party limit of 5. So maybe Larian could have pushed the limit up to 5? But honestly, at the end of the day, I'd rather they stick to their comfort zone and provide a solid game, than to potentially sacrifice quality to chase down a particular party size.

So yeah, would it be nice if we could have our entire camp come with us on our adventure all the way to level 20? Sure. But I'd rather the game release this century too!

Well i actually already posted in this Same Post Before..
But 1 think i always felt is this..
IF they Increase the Party Size will Broke the Game and Make it Super easy even in Hard difficult.. no Joke.

I Played two runs Solo in the HardMode of this Game before the New Honnor..
(BTW i already started my Solo Honor Mode.)

And Before the New Mode was Super easy even Solo..
If yu went like a Palock,Sorlock yu will Brake the Game easy.
its SUPER UPER DUPPER STRONG these combinations..
dont beleave in me ?! after 1400 hrs played i can tell yu that.. Trust in what i Say, These Combo Classes are Broken. yu become a Demigod.

And Many times During the Game at least 4,5 times yu Get a Party of 5 and made the game a Cake walk when i had a 5 man Party..
Like storming the Castle with Jaheira in act 2, the final Battle with Emperor or the Comet Gith, Halsin in act 1 yu can make hin Follow yu when yu Gank the goblin Camp and so On..
Many, Many Times the game gave yu a 5 men Party and made the game easy..
Thats Why i always Felt that they will Never increase the Party..
Another Reason its for Replay of the Game..
They Made this way to Force yu to Make More then 1 run to test all party and companions becouse in 1 run yu will never be able to actually See evrything they Have as Content..
(and in my opinion the Only Mistake they Made was.. to Make a Camping when yu could bring all of then.. if they Made a Camp Cell when yu could Only Bring 4.. this conversation would never even exist get it ?!)

Was a Mistake in the Game designe in my opinion..
If they never wanted for us to Have More then 4 Member Party.. there was no Need for a Camp when yu could Bring 6 companions..
(this only Gave People Hope and Made this Kind of Topic Pop Up.. haha)

If yu dont Beleave in me.. Just Download the No Party Limit and Gave a Try on the Hard difficult..
yu will lought on How easy it is the Game with a Bigger Party.
