Baldur’s Gate 3 has been flourishing on Xbox ever since its release, but it also ran into some rather unique issues.

Xbox explains that Baldur’s Gate 3 clips get auto-uploaded to the cloud, which leads to these bans. The punishments were rumored to be automatically issued. But Xbox denies the rumor and claims that each clip gets reviewed by a moderator before a user is punished. In other words, Xbox is manually banning players for recording improper scenes.

The support page clarifies that it is necessary to turn off auto-upload when sensitive Baldur’s Gate 3 footage is being recorded, providing steps to do so. Additionally, the page will bring no content policy or moderation changes and advises users to turn off the setting to not get banned in the future. Larian Studios previously called these bans “annoying and uncool” before contacting Microsoft, which likely led to this statement.
