D&D Direct to reveal future of series, including videogames

Dungeons & Dragons is promising a "jam-packed" show this week, as D&D Direct returns on April 21, 2022 at 9 AM PT (5 PM BST). The show will go over everything happening in the world of D&D, both in 2022 and beyond, showcasing "books, video games, entertainment, and more." 

It's almost certain that Baldur's Gate 3 will feature at some point, maybe some Dark Alliance 2, and probably more, like that third-person open-world game that Hidden Path Entertainment is developing. Expect forthcoming D&D adventure anthology Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel to feature prominently.

You can watch D&D Direct on the Wizards of the Coast website (opens in new tab), as well as on YouTube (opens in new tab) and Twitch (opens in new tab).

 Wizards of the Coast parent company Hasbro is on a roll licensing out D&D, and recently made a huge investment in the brand by purchasing (opens in new tab) the officially-licensed D&D online platform D&D Beyond to the tune of $146 million, bringing D&D's primary digital presence in-house. Rumors swirling around that acquisition say that it's a sign of D&D's more digitally-enabled future, as playing D&D on your PC (opens in new tab) gets more popular every year.
