I wonder when people will eventualy realize that Larian doesnt care for community......... They wanted to boost sales on their new RPG. There is no better way to set it in a beloved franchise and give it a Name that makes people throw their wallets at them.
Be serious.... if anyone of you would have the chance to swim in money just for giving your product a good name. EVERYONE would have done this. They never wanted to make a Baldurs Gate sequel that honors its predecessors. They wanted to boost THEIR Rpg. That reality and no matter what anyone says... thats how business is made!
If you realy dissatisfied then just never ever buy a game from Larian again.
