The official Baldur's Gate site has been updated, and there are some cryptic messages in the page source:

<!-- Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine -->
<!-- oh dear it's coming soon -->

Pick up some documentation try and start! The sky is the limit! (Though I've heard that GemRB may not be in the best shape yet.)

This has been happening since a few weeks ago

Who owns that site at the moment anyway?

No idea who owns the site... or who owns the game's art, music, character names, etc. The new logo looks pretty spiffy though. HD remake?

I suck at internet stalking, but..

which leads to

http://who.godaddy.c...prog_id=GoDaddy

which gives us.. nothing.

Baldur's Gate 2 is showing up on Steam's registry. It's been there for a month, so don't get too excited thinking it'll be available today. But something's up in general.

The page got a small cosmetic update in the form of an Aloundo quote and the text in the page source was updated, too:

<!-- February 28, 2012 -->
<!-- Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine -->
<!-- For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory. -->
<!-- And then... it returned. Better than it was before. -->

GameBanshee reports that Trent Oster/Beamdog are behind it.

i'm hoping it's either a spiffed up re-release with new UI and animations and graphics etc

or better

a new infinity engine game made with love and care by someone who "gets it"

And so it has been foretold that BG will get the DA2 treatment and be remade.

Considering that an ios remake represents probably the only possible way for the genre to make a return, it would be wonderful news.

How so? A turn based game that uses mouse control would seem to me the same as a turn based game that uses touch control.

i have an iphone and it's annoying enough to use the touchscreen for something as simple as angry birds. i can't imagine managing party formations and dealing with inventory.

maybe it would be better on an ipad?

Yeah, iPhone would be a nightmare, but iPad could be fine. Battleheart is a good example of that.

I'm kinda skeptical that an iOS port/remake is what this is about, considering you can already get that, for free. I've been known to be wrong, though.
