Hasbro teased more video games based on Dungeons and Dragons are in the works from the company’s developers, following Larian Studios’ recent announcement about its future. As one of the most iconic tabletop RPGs in gaming, the beloved franchise from Wizards of the Coast has welcomed a variety of different games to its library. The Forgotten Realms have been home to many video games, ranging from the Baldur’s Gate franchise to Gameloft’s newly announced Dungeons and Dragons survival RPG. Now, following Baldur’s Gate 3‘s success, Hasbro reportedly has more on the way.

After the overwhelming success of Baldur’s Gate 3 last year, developer Larian Studios made a surprising announcement about the series’ future earlier this week. CEO Swen Vicke confirmed that Larian would not be pursuing either DLC or a sequel to Baldur’s Gate 3, following the conclusion of Baldur’s Gate 3‘s post-launch patches. The success of the Dungeons and Dragons-based RPG would even see Larian Studios capture the coveted “Game of the Year” award at the 2023 Game Awards. Now, however, Hasbro seems to have plenty of plans for Dungeons and Dragons beyond Larian’s involvement.

Hasbro Has More Dungeons and Dragons Games in Development

As reported by IGN, Hasbro was optimistic about the future of Dungeons and Dragons video games, even without a future partnership with Larian Studios. A spokesperson for Hasbro would tease “more awesome D&D games” in development from Hasbro and its associated developers, hinting at future games to come for the franchise. The statement would also praise Larian for its work with Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro, calling the studio an “incredible partner” during the collaboration. No official detail was given about any of the in-development projects by Hasbro.

The teaser about future Dungeons and Dragons games follows a long and storied history of video games for the beloved tabletop RPG. With Dungeons and Dragons‘ first versions published in 1974, the franchise has seen game releases dating as far back as the early 1980s. Dungeons and Dragons has often featured collaborations with other franchises and media, with even NASA releasing its own tabletop Dungeons and Dragons adventure earlier this year.

The optimistic view on Dungeons and Dragons‘ video game future comes as the franchise’s core game is preparing for a major update later this year. Last month saw Wizards of the Coast confirm the release dates for the One D&D rulebooks, featuring major overhauls to the game mechanics from Dungeons and Dragons‘ fifth revision. While many expected the books to mark a fully new version of Dungeons and Dragons, Wizards of the Coast confirmed the new content to be fully compatible with Fifth Edition. New video games and updates to the core game offer plenty of exciting things to come for Dungeons and Dragons fans.
