Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available on PC and its PlayStation 5 release is only a few weeks away.
The official PS5 release of the game is on 6th September but Digital Deluxe Edition owners will get a three-day early access.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available on PC and it is currently the strongest “game of the year” contender aside from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. While PC players are cherishing their time in Faerun, PlayStation players have to wait a few more weeks until they can get their hands on the game. If you are a console player wondering when Baldur’s Gate 3 will release on PS5, here’s what you need to know.

Baldur’s Gate 3 PS5 release date

Baldur's Gate 3 is coming to PS5 on 6th September. The Digital Deluxe Edition will have early access starting on 3rd September. The game was originally scheduled to be released on Sony’s platform on 31st August but it was delayed by one week. The reason for the delay was not given, but Larian Studios said that they wanted to "make sure the game is in the best possible state for launch."

Will Baldur’s Gate 3 come to Xbox?

Yes, Baldur's Gate 3 is coming to Xbox Series X/S. However, it has been delayed indefinitely. The original release date was planned for 2023, but it was pushed back due to technical difficulties. Larian Studios has not yet announced a new release date for the Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3.

In a statement released in March 2023, Larian Studios said that the Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3 is "still in development" and that they are "working hard to get it to a state where we can be proud of it." They also said that they are "committed to releasing the Xbox version of the game," but that they cannot give a specific release date at this time.

The delay of the Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3 is a disappointment for fans of the game who were hoping to play it on their Xbox consoles. However, Larian Studios has a good track record with delivering quality games, so I am confident that the Xbox version of Baldur's Gate 3 will be worth the wait.

Baldur's Gate 3 is a role-playing game set in the Forgotten Realms, a campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop role-playing game. The game is being developed by Larian Studios, the same team that created the Divinity: Original Sin games.
