About Larian Studios

In 1996, in a small office in Gent, Belgium, Larian Studios was born. Since then, it's been our passion to create world class video games that defy expectations.

Today Larian is home to the critically acclaimed Divinity series, featuring our first crowdfunded success Divinity: Original Sin - winner of over 150 awards and nominations - and its sequel Divinity: Original Sin 2, which boasts a 93 Metacritic rating and over 160 awards (including Bafta for Best Multiplayer Game).

Thanks to the success of these games, our family has grown to over 300 people around the world, working in our Gent, Quebec, Dublin, Kuala Lumpur, Guildford and Barcelona studios. Our latest title Baldur's Gate 3 released in 2023 to critical acclaim and is now listed among Metacritic's Must-Play games.
