As compiled by Twitter user @kunkken, Larian's teaser site holds a few hints inside its code.

A not-yet-viewable video file contains metadata references to Baldur's Gate 3, Wizards of the Coast, and the familiar line "gather your party." Those three simple clues paint a pretty clear picture.

For years now fans have waited patiently for the full return of Baldur's Gate beyond Beamdog's enhanced editions, and after some false starts, Larian could very well be the best-case scenario. For his part, inXile Entertainment founder Brian Fargo who said in 2018 that he knew which studio was working on "BG3" referenced today's news in a tweet, saying, "And here it comes..."

We'll see what's up at E3. The PC Gaming Show on June 10 is a likely candidate.
