During an interview with Games Radar, Hasbro’s head of game studios, Dan Ayoub, has clarified that it is working on a “really cool D&D game” that wants to follow the same path as Baldur’s Gate 3. In other words, the devs want to focus on high-quality and long development cycles without rushing things. Hasbro is “taking a similar approach with the internal titles.”
