Xbox and Larian Co-Op Solution is to Drop Co-Op

Baldur’s Gate 3 will be coming to Xbox this year, with split-screen removed for Series S by Chris Scullion for VGC

“Super happy to confirm that after meeting Phil Spencer yesterday, we’ve found a solution that allows us to bring Baldur’s Gate 3 to Xbox players this year still, something we’ve been working towards for quite some time. All improvements will be there, with split-screen co-op on Series X. Series S will not feature split-screen co-op, but will also include cross-save progression between Steam and Xbox Series.”

Said solution mentioned yesterday was to remove functionality. I’m sure the Venn diagram of Xbox Series S owners who want to play Baldur’s Gate 3 with local split-screen doesn’t exist. I wonder if this is a green light for devs to just drop gameplay to support Series S better or if this is a case by case situation.
