Geoff Keighley is key to the Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox release date reveal

At long last, Larian Studios is sharing when it plans to reveal the Baldur's Gate 3 Xbox release date, and it's not that far away at all.

If you’re still waiting for a specific Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox release date, you’ll be pleased to know that you won’t be waiting for much longer. Larian Studios confirms that the launch date for Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox consoles is coming next month, and notorious industry event host Geoff Keighley is key when it comes to the announcement.

Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3 is easily one of the best RPG games out there right now and a strong contender when it comes to the best games of all time. So, the fact that Xbox players are having to wait so long to jump into the experience really is a shame. Thankfully, though, that wait is almost over. Following a series of vague comments on the Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox release date from Larian Studios over the last handful of weeks, we now know when we’re going to find out more – and the Baldur’s Gate 3 Xbox release date leaks suggesting we’re all in for a holiday treat may just be right.

As you can see for yourself below, the official Larian Studios social media account confirms that a “World Premiere of the exact release date” for Baldur’s Gate 3 on Xbox is coming at The Game Awards 2023 – which is on Thursday December 7, 2023.

The developer also, once again, reiterates that “the game is on track for a December release”; this means we shouldn’t have to wait more than a couple of weeks for Baldur’s Gate 3 to drop on Xbox when the release date itself is announced.

While some fans are hoping for a ‘shadow drop’ of the title, we think it’s much more likely that Baldur’s Gate 3 will arrive on December 21, two weeks after the announcement. This would give Larian Studios enough time to make sure the game is at its absolute best when it arrives and Xbox players enough time to pre-order and pre-load the game.

If you’re planning on playing, you may want to consider investing in one of the best Xbox expansion cards, too. It’s almost 110 GB on PlayStation 5 at the moment and the Xbox version could be just as big, if not bigger.
