BioWare is looking to continue their success following a decade of being one of the most popular developers in the world. With two generations behind them, they are now looking towards the future once again with Dragon Age III: Inquisition.
The Dragon Age series had a great launch with the first game back in 2009, taking home lots of RPG of the Year awards from around the critics’ circles. However, the second game was met with mixed reaction with most of the negativity aimed towards the streamlining of the gameplay for a more massive audience. Naturally, gamers blamed EA for everything.
EA has promised to engage gamers and to get their input with how they want to see the series move forward. One huge difference from Dragon Age II is that they are letting BioWare take their time with the title rather than rush and strike while the iron is hot. A LinkedIn profile from an EA Shanghai level designer has been uncovered revealing that EA has pushed the game back into 2014 and is developing the game for the unannounced Microsoft and Sony platforms.
“Scope of the DAIII has been chaged, which will target next gen platform and will be postpone to 2014. [sic]”
It’s a loose connection and still just a rumor, but like I said, why bother rushing the next Dragon Age? Mass Effect 3 is still hot, making money through multiplayer and the trilogy re-release. Take all the time you need to make a decent product, BioWare!
