The contractual disputes that caused Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition to be pulled from the online marketplace last have week have effectively halted production on both planned remakes of the series as well as any progress toward a brand-new third installment, according to a report by Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
The two remakes – Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition – were set to be developed by Overhaul Games, the developing division of the online distributor Beamdog. The first remake was released late last year but was removed before a recent patch solving several launch issues could be released.
At this point, the patch and the second remake for the landmark RPG franchise are both stalled until these vague legal issues are resolved, and there is currently no timeline for how soon these issues could be settled. This also means that the chances of seeing a Baldur’s Gate III are probably much slimmer than they were before, but they’re not completely off the table, according to the report.
