Debunked – Baldur’s Gate teaser video not related to Beamdog announce

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 29 February 2012 23:35 GMT

Settle down, kids – that teaser video has nothing to do with Beamdog’s Baldur’s Gate announce.

“This isn’t us,” Beamdog’s Trent Oster confirmed to VG247.

The short video is labelled Baldurs Gate – Teaser, and hails from an account named Beamdogger, but our suspicions were fired when it turned out to be the only video posted on the user’s brand new account. The lack of apostrophe in “Baldur’s” is a bit of a give away, too.

Following the discovery of an updated teaser site yesterday, Beamdog revealed it is hoping to make a Baldur’s Gate-related announcement soon. The developer and publisher was founded by an ex-BioWare member and recently brought MDK2 to PC in HD form.
