Yes, but then they can still call it something else. Let the series rest, it has done its share, leave it in peace. :)

The Bhaalspawn arc that encompassed the BG games is over. What I would expect would be a game "set in the universe" of BG, and I don't mean a game set in the Forgotten Realms. Despite having common settings and common time frames, D&D computer games of different franchises rarely, if ever, meet one another in terms of established characters or settings.

Yup, and that's all I ask.

Well, I mean I'd prefer it not to suck giant donkey dick too I guess.

What about the story of someone who's not a Bhaalspawn, but gets caught up in the wars of the Bhaalspawn?  Might make a darn ripping tale.

Using the name of a good video game series in a new game that has a different lore or kind of gameplay doesn't have to turn out badly. Look at Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. The Might and Magic games was some of the best RPGs made, Dark Messiah was incredibly fun to play. I've never had the choice between killing a goblin through normal sword fighting, fireballs, arrows to the back of it's head, quarterstaff bashing, sneaking and stabbing or actually just kicking the fucker of a cliff or into some spikes. Baldur's Gate 3 can be a different but still very enjoyable game.

Also: Heroes of Might and Magic 2&3. Same lore, vastly different gameplay, really freakin' good.
