Interesting.Beamdog has confirmed that the mysterious "Adventure Y" is in fact a new Baldur's Gate game. It won't be a sequel, however, but will instead take place in the gap between the Enhanced Editions of the original game and Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn.
"This year, the eagerly anticipated Adventure Y will finally navigate the dark underground caverns of development and venture out into the Sword Coast," the studio wrote on its Beamblog. "Weve mentioned before that Adventure Y will be an addition to the Baldurs Gate line using the Infinity engine, bridging the gap between Baldurs Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldurs Gate II: Enhanced Edition."
That prior mention was presumably the one made way back in mid-2012, when Beamdog boss Trent Oster tweeted, "Keep your ears peeled for Adventure Y, which is intimately linked to the Bhallspawn [sic] storyline." In a separate tweet, he described it as "an optional storyline piece in the Bhaalspawn [sic] series."
Beamdog said the official announcement of the gametitle, release date, that sort of thingwon't be coming until late spring, and that the release will be "something bigger than we've ever done before." As for a potential Baldur's Gate 3, that's not happeningat least, not yet. "Wed be lying if we said we never think about doing a Baldurs Gate III game, so we wont say that," the studio wrote. "But we will say theres nothing in the works yet regarding BGIII or a 5th edition game."
