Icewind Dale to Follow if Baldur’s Gate is Successful
Beamdog head Trent Oster has stated via Twitter that should Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition be a success, an Icewind Dale remake is a real possibility.
The topic of Icewind Dale has come up a number of times.We are interested, but first we need #bgee to succeed

Beamdog’s Cameron Tofer has previously suggested that the success of Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition may spawn Baldur’s Gate 3, so it sounds like a lot is riding on BGEE.
One possibility that is definitely not in the cards is a remake of the Ultima series, which Beamdog tried to pitch, but was shot down by EA:
@zante2033 We talked to EA about Ultima when we were exploring ideas.They told us no thanks.

Will BGEE’s success make EA regret that decision?
