Baldur’s Gate 3 and Orcs Must Die 3 Are Due in 2020, According to Google Stadia Press Release
A fresh Google Stadia press release reveals today that five new games (detailed below) are coming to the platform between Spring and Summer.
Arguably, though, the most interesting part is in the blurb that comes right before. That's because it suggests Baldur's Gate 3 and Orcs Must Die 3 will hit Google Stadia in 2020; whereas we knew about the latter, we weren't even dreaming about the former.
The development teams behind both games (Larian Studios and Robot Entertainment) have discussed their appreciation for Google Stadia before. In fact, Orcs Must Die 3, a timed exclusive on the cloud-based streaming platform, wouldn't even be a thing if it wasn't for Google.
As for Baldur's Gate 3, you'll probably recall that it was revealed during the very first Stadia Connect live stream, and Larian CEO Swen Vincke has since openly discussed the possibilities available with cloud computing.
Furthermore, the studio known for the Divinity: Original Sin series has already teased that 'something is brewing'. We'll know more on February 27th, but given this press release, a release window could be shared. Divinity: Original Sin 2 launched in September 2017, about three years after the first installment, so Baldur's Gate 3 (in development for both PC and Google Stadia) could be expected in the Fall season.
