While it was undeniably one of the biggest success stories of 2023, Larian Studios remained tight-lipped about the exact sales figures for Baldur's Gate 3. However, recent comments from the team hint that the critically acclaimed RPG has sold a whopping 15 million copies.

This is far beyond the expectations of the developers and producers of this game, and it seems that the popularity and number of copies sold will continue at the same pace in 2024. In a recent interview with Gamespot, Larian Studios founder and CEO Swen Vincke discussed the wide range of topics surrounding Baldur's Gate 3, from its past to its present and future.

Speaking of the game's massive success, Vincke revealed that Baldur's Gate 3 "almost doubled DOS2 [Divinity Original Sin 2] now, so it's doing really, really well because DOS2 was very successful. So it exceeded what we expected." Although specific numbers have not been revealed, Son of Spard's calculations suggest that the game has likely sold around 15 million copies.

This estimate takes into account Vincke's statement about doubling the sales of Divinity: Original Sin 2. In 2019, DOS2 reportedly tripled the sales of its predecessor, reaching 2.5 million copies sold. Even without exact numbers, it's safe to say that Baldur's Gate 3 is still a strong contender to be one of the best-selling games of 2024, despite being released the previous year.

The enduring popularity of the game is proof of its quality, but also of the passionate development team at Larian Studio, who are starting to go hand in hand with the biggest publishers. This news will likely excite fans eagerly awaiting future content for Baldur's Gate 3.

With sales exceeding expectations, Larian Studios is well positioned to continue expanding the game and deliver a truly epic RPG experience. While it was arguably the biggest success story of 2023, Larian Studios remained tight-lipped about the sales figures for Baldur's Gate 3. However, the team dropped enough hints to suggest that the universally acclaimed RPG sold around 15 million copies.
