Today, Bioware released early details regarding the next installment in their popular Dragon Age series.
Executive producer, Mark Darrah, announced via the official Bioware blog that Dragon Age III has been in development for the past 18 months and will be hitting retail stores during the fall of 2013. The following tidbits were also mentioned by him regarding the game:
- The next game will be called Dragon Age III: Inquisition.
- We won’t be talking about the story of the game today. Though you can make some guesses from the title.
- This game is being made by a lot of the same team that has been working on Dragon Age since Dragon Age: Origins. It’s composed of both experienced BioWare veterans and talented new developers.
- We are working on a new engine which we believe will allow us to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East, we talked about armor and followers… Yeah, that kind of customization. We’ve started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this.
Dragon Age II has received mixed reviews from both fans and critics alike, leaving many to contemplate if the series can still be saved. I’m curious to know if any of you guys are looking forward to this game or have you completely given up on this franchise? Feel free to sound off in the comments below.
