Remember that mysterious Baldur's Gate website countdown that we linked to last month? Well it turns out that we're not going to be seeing a new Baldur's Gate game but rather HD re-releases of the first two games. The games are being put into a new version of the original Infinity Engine which will include many graphical and performance improvements.
The development team behind the re-releases are Overhaul Games (A fitting name I might add) which is a division of Beamdog that is run by ex-BioWare developer Trent Oster who was one of the lead designers on the Baldur's Gate games.
Although many fans will be disappointed with the announcement of the two enhanced editions and not an announcement about a third Baldur's Gate game a developer from Overhaul Games recently had an interview with Nathan Grayson of GameSpy and said that a Baldur's Gate 3 was Beamdog's "Long-Term Goal".
No release date has been announced as of yet for the two enhanced editions.
