Take a moment to visit baldursgate.com. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Notice that countdown? It started earlier today and should end at noon tomorrow.
And what happens when it ends? I really have no idea. Neither does anyone who I've asked. Not industry folk, not colleagues, not people involved with the creation of the original Baldur's Gate games.
I've got my fingers crossed that the end of the countdown holds the announcement of Baldur's Gate 3, but for the next thirteen hours we're all in the dark here.
Expect more tomorrow.
Update: The countdown has ended, and revealed Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, a high-def remake of the classic roleplaying game destined to hit some system at some point later this year. Seriously, that's all anyone knows. The whole thing was a huge let down.
