According to information received by our site from a reliable source, the devs of Baldur's Gate 3 are planning to establish a Polish branch. We're not sure about the exact location, but Warsaw is an obvious candidate. The reports were also confirmed by a second, independent source.

Even though our informers are sure of this information, keep in mind that this is not an official statement and plans can change. Larian Studio hasn't yet replied to our request for commenting on these reports, and the job offers on the developer's official website don't mention anything about the new studio.

However, it's worth noting that this wouldn't be the second or even third branch of Larian Studios. While some still consider it an independent team, the developer now has six studios, with four of them located in Barcelona, Dublin, Ghent, and Guildford.

The Polish contribution to the production of the company's latest hit should also be mentioned. Poles from Anshar Studios (Gamedec, Zoria: Age of Shattering), located in Katowice, helped with Baldur's Gate III. Previously, they collaborated with the Fool's Theory team (The Thaumaturge) to develop several complimentary expansions for Divinity: Original Sin 2, which were distributed as Gift Bags.

So, Polish developers are no strangers to Larian. While we are convinced of the truthfulness of our two independent sources, these plans will only be confirmed after an official announcement from the studio.
