    Explain yourself please. Google doesn't say anything about a new Baldur's gate game.

    Probably just an "update" on the old games.

    Baldur's Gate with D&D 4th edition rules! :laugh:

    If it going to BioWare, which means EA, which means Origin, then no thanks.

    If it will use DRM that does not have any on-line requirements, maybe.

    Meh, I mean I loved Baldur's Gate I & II and their expansions, but this site is just a picture with BG background music... and it's not Bioware; the original BG development team has yet to be bested in the rpg department. To be a good rpg, there has to be more than just game mechanics and killing stuff, which is all most developers do these days...

    I saw a report on Joystiq that someone found something about Baldur's Gate 2 in the Stream registry, probably related and it'll probably be re released soon.

    *scratches head*
    If it's a rerelease... what's the point?
    You can get the complete Baldur's Gate series, cheap and DRM free, at GOG.com. Legally.
    No logging into Steam to play.

    Considering how different the Forgotten Realms is now (with the advance in timeline and all) maybe there IS a chance that it's a proper sequel.
