Microsoft completely misjudged Baldur’s Gate 3
Not a great look for Microsoft
I’ve started playing it and liking it so far. Wish I had more time/energy to sink into it.
“In hindsight, Microsoft made a big oopsie; Baldur’s Gate 3 has no exclusivity tied to it, so its exclusion from the Xbox console was noticeable. In February, Larian Studios explained why Baldur’s Gate 3 didn’t have a planned Xbox release at the time. Vincke said on X — then Twitter — that Baldur’s Gate 3’s split-screen co-op didn’t work on Xbox Series S, Microsoft’s lower-priced console. Microsoft requires games to have feature parity across Xbox Series X and Series S, which held up the launch. By Aug. 24, after Baldur’s Gate 3’s major successes, Microsoft made a concession to let Baldur’s Gate 3 launch without split-screen co-op on Xbox Series S.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is now expected to arrive on Xbox later this year.”Posted on 2023-09-19T20:04:25+0000
