Speaking at GDC, Ben Maltz-Jones, the developer's creative content manager, explained how this impacted the studio's media strategy and the lessons learned after all the uproar caused. Together with Trevor Ford, head of communities, they confirmed the following:

What doesn't work on TikTok? Sex with bears. They hate it.

The issue, as they highlighted, was not with Larian Studios, but with the content of the scene. For this reason, he understands that TikTok has set a limit, even with not-so-explicit moments appearing. However, there was no way not to be caught up in the hype of what had happened, and Ford added this:

For me, authenticity means taking care of Larian profiles as if they were profiles made by fans.

Even without showing these intimate cuts in Halsin's romantic episode as they wanted, the creators of Baldur's Gate 3 left 2023 with the trophy for best game of 2023. Oh, and Larian's account on the platform has 270 thousand followers and is active. No ban!
