Back in June, Baldur's Gate 3 developer Larian Studios said that the early access release of its Dungeons & Dragons RPG would happen in August. Maybe. Well, as the developer announced today, it turns out that maybe clause has come into effect. Baldur's Gate 3's early access release won't happen this month. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/13/baldurs-gate-3-new-guerrilla-collective-trailer"] Announced on Twitter, Larian said "BG3 won’t hit August, but it’s just around the corner." The studio does have a release date set, though, and will reveal it as part of the 'Panel From Hell', which takes place at 10am PT on August 18. Larian boss Swen Vincke will be joined by his team and Geoff Keighley to deliver the news.
