Baldur's Gate Countdown to Tomorrow

The Baldur's Gate Website that recently surfaced now features a countdown, presumably related to the hope "to announce something soon" expressed by former BioWare designer Trent Oster, co-founder of Beamdog, who own the website. The countdown looks like it will hit zero around noon EDT tomorrow, so hopefully we'll learn more about plans for the RPG series then.

Did not realize.. but enough? I don't want remakes, I want BG3. Nothing could ever make we want to replay the story of BG1 and BG2 without at least 6 dozen mods. And if its different story and characters then it ain't a remake. So i am not really hyped for this ;p

I can certainly understand this sentiment, but given the trends in recent CRPG development, is there any developer out there with the funds to develop a game of this scale that you'd actually trust to create a third Baldur's Gate title? Many people, myself included, would love to play BG1 and BG2 again, but the ancient quality of the Infinity Engine makes that difficult for some people. Preferring a new game is understandable, but not very realistic, especially when you're talking about a small developer that doesn't make big games of this type. Really, nobody does anymore - except for CDProjekt and Bethesda, but they have their own franchises to work on. And I don't want Bioware anywhere near a cherished IP like Baldur's Gate.
