Beamdog's next game is a Dungeons & Dragons RPG

If you've been wondering what Beamdog would do next after the release of Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, then wonder no more. Codex newshunter LESS T_T just spotted a link to this wanted ad on David Gaider's Twitter feed:

NARRATIVE DESIGNER

Ever considered taking your love of roleplaying games to the next level and actually becoming part of their creation? Do you dream about constructing epic quests for the players of your tabletop game? Would the idea of being part of the future of Dungeons & Dragons on computers appeal to you? Beamdog, the game developers behind Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition—as well as the newly released Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear—are looking for a Narrative Designer to join their creative team.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Narrative Designer will be responsible for working with the rest of the Beamdog creative team to craft an upcoming (and currently unannounced) CRPG in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. This means coming up with unique and exciting quest designs, creating brand new characters the fans will love, and being responsible for their writing and dialogue through the entire iterative and editing process all the way to release.

It's hard work, as Beamdog’s games require a great deal of writing as well as flexibility on the part of the narrative designers, but it makes for a new challenge every day. There is no other career quite like it!
I know what you're thinking - Baldur's Gate 3! Keep in mind however that in the run-up to Siege of Dragonspear's release, Beamdog's Phillip Daigle stated that the recently hired Gaider was not working on a Baldur's Gate game. So it may be an entirely new thing. And it'll definitely have to use 5th Edition rules.
