And the person interviewed there wasn't Peter Molyneux.
So, not sure where your going with that. That doesn't change that they don't own the rights and would have to acquire them. Profits and strong interest from the enhanced editions would help that obviously.

This link might explain the kickstarter angle and the need for EE to succeed.

As I said we don't know the arrangements they have in relation to acquiring the rights to make BG3.

I wonder about this

“We’ve talked a bit with our partners about it, and they’ve kind of indicated a preference to not go with a Kickstarter route,”
?

Im a bit dumb after having being home with the mother of all colds for a week, but which partners are holding them in line?

I have Kickstarted about a dozen projects but I wouldn't back BG3 on principle. I'm not kickstarting something so that Wizards of the Coast / Hasbro / Bioware EA etc can all earn license fees. They have enough money to fund BG3 if they want to.
