Like, that's not what their comment said, that's not what ANYONE from the company has said.

Yes this is capitalism so all artistic endeavours are polluted by greed to some degree, just like the rest of society, but I really don't think it's as severe in this case as you're making out.

I like how we're all pretending on this thread that Baldur's Gate is a niche series with a small die-hard cult following despite selling millions of copies long before Larian became a household name in the industry. I don't see this as old-fashioned capitalism (whatever you may want to call it) but rather as rent-seeking behavior that overbloated, parasitic companies tend to exhibit (I'm not talking about Larian).
