We already know that Beamdog, the team behind the slightly buggy but generally pretty great Enhanced Editions for Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, is creating a spin-off tale codenamed Adventure Y, to take place slap bang in the middle of Bioware's classic fantasy RPG adventures.

It looks like we'll be finding out more about the project pretty soon. A timer has gone up over on the game's official website, counting down until July 3.

Well now It's long been rumoured, but it's still quite a shock to hear Beamdog confirm that they're working on a completely new entry in the Baldur's Gate series.

It's not quite Baldur's Gate 3, though. Instead the developer will create an all-new side chapter in the storyline that takes place between the first two games.
