That could be a solution, there is a small player base that are actually hard core D&D players and want Baldur's gate to be exactly like tabletop D&D.

For the rest of us I honestly hope they don't do that, because with all the respect D&D deserves, it is an old system and could use a lot of improvement.
how do u know you are representing the majority of players? And 5e is release for only like 5 years, how come it's a very old system?
They might be referring to PnP in general, not just 5e. Majority of gamers are casual as well. They won't be showing up on forums or complaining about 5e rules. They'll be Twitch or twitter just having fun with the sillier parts of the game. I can't think of a big RPG series that hasn't streamlined theirs games either. So I've ended up usually playing the old ones with graphic mods or new ones with game changing mods.
