Nevermind Baldur’s Gate – if there’s one vintage RPG I want to see made over in glossy modern, it’s Planescape: Torment. That’s just me and everybody else, apparently, including the people already busy giving Baldur’s Gate a makeover.
“I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a revisit of [Planescape:] Torment,” Beamdog boss Cameron Tofer told Shacknews. “We would love to have the opportunity to do it.”
Overhaul Games, a division of Beamdog, is working on Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, recently confirmed for a PC and iOS launch a bit later this year. The games are being remade using a new version of the Infinity Engine, seen in both previous games and the Icewind Dale series, as well as Planescape: Torment.
The studio has previously also expressed interest in doing a third Baldur’s Gate game.
“Baldur’s Gate III has been our long-term goal,” Cameron Tofer told GameSpy. “We have a lot of things to put in place before such a project can be launched. So currently there is no such project but that’s the one we want to do. Our thoughts have been that Enhanced Edition for [Baldur’s Gate] and [Baldur’s Gate II] just make sense before there’s any Baldur’s Gate III.”
