Baldur’s Gate 3 Has Sold A Whopping 10 Million Copies, Says Director

In other news: "We’ll be talking in depth about what our mod support will look like soon."

Story Highlights

  • Baldur’s Gate 3 is the high-standing Game of the Year of 2023, and a mesmerizing RPG in today’s date.
  • The Director of Publishing at Larian Studios has confirmed that the title has exceeded 10 million units sold. 
  • Other details, such as future mod support, were also outlined by the Larian representative on X.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been sending shockwaves throughout the industry from the day it came out on a global scale. Despite the title being in early access since October 2020, Larian Studios has polished its front-running RPG to near-perfection, and as a result, more than 10 million copies of the game have been sold as of today, the Director of Publishing at Larian, Michael Douse, confirmed. 

This is a game that went from ~2 mil players to way over 10 in a very short space of time, so it’s natural the conversation becomes muddier and complex. But in order to maintain the same level of dialogue, we need people to understand that these conversations take time,” says Michael on X.

I admit this is a rather subtle way to confirm what is otherwise a fantastic piece of news for the developer, but the focus of Larian currently rests elsewhere, which is to “patch the game” and rid it of bugs while simultaneously working on console mod support. Furthermore, Michael has asked fans to cooperate with the studio, and not to verbally abuse any relevant personnel, whether a developer or a fellow fan.

Previously, Baldur’s Gate 3 was tracked to have sold about 5.2 million copies, according to a report by the Belgian Embassy in China. And for those who missed it, the game has spoiled Hasbro Inc. in riches, earning them about $90 million over the course of its release. For reference, Hasbro is the parent company of Wizards of the Coast, a giant in the tabletop RPG business.
