Baldur's Gate III Battling Through "Legal Hell"?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun hears from Trent Oster about the legal woes that caused the suspension of sale of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. The Beamdog and Overhaul Games president tells them they still hope to develop Baldur’s Gate III despite the current "legal hell" embroiling the RPG series, but it's hard to say he sounds optimistic. Here's the deal:

“The prognosis [for resuming work on Baldur's Gate] is mixed,” he admitted to RPS. “Best case, we can sort this out soon. Worst case, this could be in legal hell for a while. I like making games, but this contractual dispute bullshit keeps me up at night.”

As a result, the team hasn’t given up on Baldur’s Gate III, but the road to the pie-in-the-sky sequel just got a whole, whole lot rockier.

“Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition is on indefinite hold, as is the current patch,” said Oster. “Baldur’s Gate III, we are still interested in the concept, but currently I’d say were very demoralized.”
