You know its entirely possible that Minsc will be in BG3, as it's apparently set about a hundred years or so after the events of BG2. Minsc and Boo were petrified at one point and placed in the market square of Baldur's Gate - known as The Wide. Over time the statue become known as the Beloved Ranger, until about 70 years after its 'construction' a wild magic surge went off nearby and dispelled the petrification.
Minsc and Boo have since gone on to have many adventures. They become Heroes of Baldur's Gate - a title bestowed upon great heroes who have stopped calamities within the city - a title he earned by helping to defeat an incursion of werewolves that had stolen several very holy relics in a major temple of the city.
He has since been on many adventures, including taking on (but not defeating) the legendary vampire Strahd von Zarovich. He fought against the cults of elemental evil, defended the city of Frozenshear in the far north from an attack by frost giants, and more. Boo even once accidently drank a potion of growth... for a short time becoming a giant-sized, miniature giant space hampster.
While according to the existing timeline Minsc and Boo are still a statue when BG3 takes place, it's entirely possible they shuffle around a few dates and your hero is directly involved in his.. un-petrification. IDK if he'll be a companion, but I can't imagine a BG game where he doesn't make an appearance.
