Creating another game like Divinity 2 would probably require a AAA budget (many times D:OS's) which would require a console version, which would require a "next gen" (meaning Xbox One / PS4 compatible) engine, etc etc. Whole thing would probably require a publisher too, since you'd need the AAA budget upfront. From what Swen has said in various interviews, I get the feeling that's not a road they're particularly interested in going down again.

When Larian talks about D2 they don't really seem to be happy with the game.
