ICYMI, Swen Vincke, the CEO of Larian Studios, has shared what he wanted to say in his acceptance speech at The Game Awards.

Larian took home six wins at the awards ceremony for Baldur’s Gate 3, including game of the year. As he was unable to make a long speech due to the controversially short speech time allotted to winners, Vincke posted a thread on X/Twitter with all the thanks he had wanted to give after winning game of the year.
