Eugene Evans, senior vice president of digital strategy and licensing for Wizards of the Coast and parent company Hasbro, who spoke with PC Gamer following Baldur's Gate 3's recent BAFTA wins. Evans confirmed the company is keen to continue the series, and has started having conversations to that effect, although it sounds like it'll be some time before anything specific is revealed. "We're now talking to lots of partners," Evans explains, "and being approached by a lot of partners who are embracing the challenge of, what does the future of the Baldur's Gate franchise look like?"

"So we certainly hope that it's not another 25 years, as it was from Baldur's Gate 2 to 3, before we answer that," Evan continued. "But we're going to take our time and find the right partner, the right approach, and the right product that could represent the future of Baldur's Gate."

"We take that very, very seriously, as we do with all of our decisions around our portfolio. We don't rush into decisions as to who to partner with on products or what products we should be considering." As Evans noted later, "The bar has been set very high, and it's our job to reach and surpass that bar."

And while it's "too early" to start talking specifics, when asked if we might ever see some of Baldur's Gate 3's beloved characters return, Evans suggested it's certainly a possibility. "They are now essentially part of D&D canon," he explained. "I would like to think that all of those characters, for the sake of the fans, could potentially appear in future products."
