Yeah and Final Fantasy XV is the fourteenth sequel to Final Fantasy
They called it Baldurs Gate because fewer people would care if it was called Dungeon's and Dragons: Illithid uprising. It's the oldest trick to make your game more interesting by connecting it to an IP people remember. People who expect a sequel to Baldurs Gate should be prepared for massive disappointment.
I agree. One thing in common in all the interviews about bg is that they distanced themselves from the classic BG trilogy. They do not even name one game.
I think they could do a very good game, but I do not think the game will be a continuation in story, mechanics, etc... of the previous games.
