Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Editions & Sequel News
Just thought I'd drop this here for those who care.

The plan is to release Enhanced Editions of Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 and their expansions this summer, and revenue from these products, as well as that of an eventual Kickstarter campaign, or the like, would then go to a Baldur's Gate 3, which is their longterm goal. For the time being, you can check out Trent Oster's Twitter for details about this and that. He has stated that they're to release the first screenshots of the Enhanced Editions this week.

Personally, I'd rather have a poor sequel that I can ignore than none at all.

Other than the PC, of course, the Enhanced Editions will be available for the iPad. Amongst the new content is an extra adventure and another NPC that one can have join one's party.

This is sounding pretty cool and it will be interesting to see if they can gain enough momentum and get funding for a third game. BG2 is right near the top of greatest games for me and will be a hard one to follow up, but I'd like to think these guys will have the drive and love for the BG series to deliver a worthy followup.

I hope this does well so then Obsidian can get the go ahead from Atari to make an Icewind Dale 3.

If the eventual sequel is decent at best, I imagine it'd be the nail in the coffin for the franchise. If it spawns further sequels, then, the first lacklustre one of those will probably be the nail in the coffin. Anyway, at worst, we get one bad sequel. No biggie.

Anyone care to speculate about the premise?
