Is Baldur’s Gate 3 Coming to PS4?

If you are one of the many gamers holding out hope for a PS4 version of Baldur’s Gate 3, you may be disappointed to hear that Larian Studios has shut down any possibility of a port. In an interview with Eurogamer back in 2020, executive producer David Walgrave expressed his opinion on a potential PS4 port, revealing that he did not believe the system would be able to run the game.

“We are focusing on PC and Stadia but that’s it,” Walgrave told Eurogamer. “I don’t think that current-gen consoles would be able to run it. There’s a lot of technical upgrades and updates that we did to our engine, and I don’t know if it would be capable of being able to actually run on those things.”

While Baludr’s Gate 3 won’t be coming to PS4, PlayStation loyalists can still play the game. The PlayStation 5 is set to receive a console port of Baldur’s Gate 3, and players who preorder the game’s Deluxe Edition can play the first seventy-two hours of the game’s main story. Console ports for the Xbox Series S and Series X have also been announced but have been delayed due to issues with making Baldur’s Gate 3’s multiplayer co-op mode work with the XBox’s hardware.

Unfortunately, the PS5 port of Basldur’s Gate 3 is set to release on September 6th, 2023, over a month after its release on PC. This means that PS5 players will have to wait before they can explore the Forgotten Realms on their television screens.
