Just a few months after opening a new studio in Guildford, Baldur’s Gate 3 developer Larian Studios is continuing its expansion with the opening of a new office in Barcelona. The new location is part of a team now spread across seven locations, with studios based in Ghent, Quebec, Dublin, St Petersburg, Kuala Lumpur, Guildford, and Barcelona.

The new office has been opened as part of a deal with existing studio BlitWorks, who are known for their mobile and console ports of various games–including the Nintendo Switch port for Larian’s Divinity: Original Sin 2. Under the new deal, BlitWorks’ development teams have been absorbed into Larian Studios, while BlitWorks will continue on as an independent publisher.

Job listings for the new Barcelona studio mention that developers will be working on Larian RPG projects, with the introduction for a programming role saying the studio “is working on new projects and looking for new talents.” With BlitWorks’ history, however, it’s likely the new studio will be focused on console ports for Larian’s games.
