Dragon Age: Origins was an amazing RPG that was greated with quite impressive reception with its release. Dragon Age 2 sadly fell quite short from what people had expected of a sequal to Dragon Age: Origins. But now it seems that Bioware might have a chance to rally the shattered peaces in this third game. A few months back apparently, there was a contest on naming the third game and thus it now has been announced:
EA has officially announced the latest installment of the Dragon Age series, Dragon Age III: Inquisition. The game is due out in late 2013.
BioWare’s Edmonton and Montreal studios are developing the game, using EA’s Frostbite 2 engine. The game has been in development for two years.
“We’ve been poring over player feedback from past games and connecting directly with our fans,” said Aaryn Flynn, general manager of BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. “They haven’t held back, so we’re not either. With Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, we want to give fans what they’re asking for – a great story with choices that matter, a massive world to explore, deep customization and combat that is both tactical and visceral.”
EA says the Dragon Age series has sold over eight million copies total, which makes this announcement all the more obvious. The was also word of a survey last month that included leaks about potential titles (including Inquisition), and an interview with BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka talking about plans for a then-hypothetical sequel. There’s no word yet on what platforms the game is being developed for.
So will Bioware actually listen to its fans and save the series from utter distruction? Will it take another step backwards rather then forwards? Who knows, but hopefully Bioware has learned it’s lesson on that sometimes change isn’t always a good thing especially when a good thing works well.
