Baldur’s Gate III has gotten a very slight delay, developer Larian Studios has announced. The game was originally slated to launch in Early Access on September 30, but it has now been pushed back by one week to October 6.
In a message shared on Twitter, Larian says the delay is out of caution to give the studio more time to “triple check stability” and “triple check localization.” The full message reads as follows:
We have bad news, and good news. But first, the bad news! We’re delaying to October 6, by a week. We’ll be back later today with the romance & companionship update to pick you all up again. pic.twitter.com/j2NOEk4jAi

“It’s the year 2020! We’re launching an active development build, which means that things can go right, or they can go wrong each time we compile a new one. Live development is different to ‘going gold’ in that you never really have a ‘gold version.’
