Larian’s Baldur’s Gate 3 team is 10 times bigger than when it made Divinity: Original Sin

Larian Studios always goes all-in. After nearly bankrupting itself to make Divinity: Original Sin, Larian tripled in size to pull off an ambitious sequel, growing to around 150 developers. With one of the best RPGs of the decade under its belt, Larian then set out to make Baldur’s Gate 3. A year in pre-production let them build out estimates of how much work this even more ambitious game would take, hiring developers to work on fancy cinematics Divinity didn’t have. “We thought we had it all figured out. We even estimated how big we’d have to become,” said Larian founder Swen Vincke. 

They were wrong.
