Taking a step in the right direction, the studio has revealed they are targeting 60 FPS with the PlayStation 5 port. Although they claim that they need a little more time to do that at this point while keeping the quality intact. About the Xbox port, they stated:

We’re optimistic about Baldur’s Gate 3 on the Xbox Series X, but in order to announce and release the game on Xbox, we need to ensure that the game is performing without compromise across the entire Xbox X|S ecosystem, in multiplayer and with split-screen. We’ll update you as soon as we can.

Moreover, the Mac version is also planned and it will release later. Although no release date has been revealed. You can learn more about the title here.
