Baldur’s Gate III Developer Opens its Seventh Studio

Larian Studios is expanding, as evidenced by the fact that the Belgian team now has seven studios, including one in Central/Eastern Europe.


After Ghent, Guildford, Dublin, Barcelona, Quebec and Kuala Lumpur, Larian Studios’ seventh studio has opened in the Polish capital of Warsaw, Larian announced on Twitter. The team, led by Swen Vincke, has thus grown into a truly international operation, with a presence from Canada to Malaysia (with no small amount of success, as Baldur’s Gate III has won a number of awards and sold very well).



Larian Studios Warsaw studio head Ula Jach said in a press release, “The decision to open a permanent studio in Warsaw shows how serious we are about fostering creativity, collaboration and innovation in the heart of Poland’s vibrant gaming scene. We’re excited about the opportunity to work with the region’s wealth of talent and expertise, especially considering Poland’s strong reputation as a hub for RPG and gaming enthusiasts.”

Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke added: “Visiting the Game Industry Conference last year confirmed what I’ve been thinking for a while – there’s a lot of talent here and a lot of developers who think like us. On top of that, many of them want to work on RPGs, so it’s a match made in heaven. Our plan for the Polish studio is simple. Build a team that can work on our two very ambitious new RPGs and enjoy the fruits of their labor. We’re a very bottom-up company, so I’m excited to see what new things they can bring us. I think it’s going to work out really well.”

Poland is indeed a vibrant place in the gaming industry, with CD Projekt, Techland, and People Can Fly being just three examples of what many people know as household names that all hail from there. Larian’s expansion confirms that this region also has good potential.
