Baldur’s Gate 3 may be one of E3 2019’s big surprises

Larian's Divinity: Original Sin series - which so far amounts to two games - have found a lot of success as throwbacks to the golden age of computer RPGs with modern tweaks, so when the company started teasing an E3 2019 announcement with the roman numeral "III," a lot of people probably made some logical assumptions.
