2023 is set to be an incredible year for gaming, with one standout game stealing the spotlight. Baldur’s Gate III swept the Golden Joystick Awards over the weekend, cementing Larian Studios’ position as a force to be reckoned with in the gaming industry.
In the wake of this massive win, Larian Studios founder and CEO Swen Vincke spoke to GamesRadar about his hopes for the CRPG genre following the success of Baldur’s Gate III. “We’ve been very focused on making our game and a lot of people have attached a lot of things to it as the game turned into what we wanted it to be,” Vincke said.
Vincke expressed his optimism for the future of CRPG-type games, stating, “I hope there are more CRPG-type games. It’s a game that I enjoy playing and a lot of people in the industry enjoy playing. So if these games come out and they don’t have a story that we already know, I think that will be great. I look forward to these types of games.”
The impact of Baldur’s Gate III’s success is expected to be felt for years to come. The game’s triumph serves as a testament to the power of creating lovable characters, deep gameplay, and a compelling story that players can immerse themselves in.
