An all new approach.
In a move that was only surprising in how long it took to actually happen, Bioware have announced today that a new Dragon Age game is in the works. Dragon Age 3: Inquisition is scheduled for release in late 2013, and is being developed with a focus on customization.
Mark Darrah, executive producer at Bioware had this to say on the Bioware Blog today:
So here’s what I can confirm for now:
- 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.
Frostbite 2? That’s interesting. What do you think, will Dragon Age 3 be better than Dragon Age 2? Sounds promising.
