If you were hoping for a new entry into the Baldur's Gate series and were disappointed when the countdown reached zero, there may be hope for you yet. Cameron Tofer of the development studio Overhaul Games recently had a chat with GameSpy and revealed that Baldur's Gate 3 is their long-term goal. Once this "Enhanced Edition" is completed, Mr. Tofer says he'll likely turn to Kickstarter to fund the next entry in this classic RPG series. Kickstarter is pretty clearly changing the future of videogames.

HOW GREAT IS THIS?! For all my fellow RPG fans out there, let us grin together with excitement. I was completely fine with a remake+ of the original games since a lot of what prevents people from jumping in to these games is the technology. But a completely new third game afterwards? How perfect! Rope in old and new fans with the Enhanced Edition, and then continue that story for everyone to enjoy together.

While the Enhanced Edition is currently geared towards a download-only distribution, I really hope the potential Baldur's Gate 3 gets a physical "Miniature Giant Space Hamster Collector's Edition" with an appropriate-sized manual. I mean, does anyone else remember the Shadows of Amn manual? That thing was about a gazillion pages and was spiral-bound. Spiral-bound!
