The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is using his undead powers for good as his company Skybound Games has announced that classic Beamdog games are coming to consoles. These include PC RPGs like Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, and Neverwinter Nights.
We are bringing these amazing titles to #XboxOne, #NintendoSwitch, and #PS4! http://go.redirectingat.com?id=87431X1573192&xs=1&url=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2FNbbPN8tQFO— Skybound Games (@skyboundgames) February 7, 2019
Developer Beamdog and Skybound Games also announced games like Baldur's Gate: Seige of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment will be coming to consoles later this year. According to Skybound, these games will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. So, no need to worry about being excluded from this PC classics revival if you only own one console.
Skybound Games is quickly ramping up its video game publishing business. Originally a part of the larger Skybound Entertainment brand, Skybound Games recently made news after it announced it was acquiring the rights to Telltale's The Walking Dead after the latter studio's collapse. Skybound is currently working on completing the final season of The Walking Dead video game series.
Skybound says it'll have more details regarding the console releases in the coming months, but fans will be able to get a first look at Beamdog's console lineup at PAX East next month. We'll hopefully have technical details and previews by then.
