EA and BioWare today unleashed news that’s bound to set the next-gen console debates in full swing: Dragon Age 3: Inquisition is coming in “late 2013.” The platforms were unannounced, but the timing of the release date implies it will be a launch title for Microsoft’s and Sony’s next-gen systems.
The next chapter in the award-winning role-playing game (RPG) franchise is in development at BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. The game’s being built on a brand-new RPG game engine underpinned by the Frostbite 2 technology.
“The Dragon Age team has been working on Dragon Age 3: Inquisition for almost two years now,” said Aaryn Flynn, General Manager of BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. “We’ve been poring over player feedback from past games and connecting directly with our fans. 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.”
Added Flynn, “At the same time, we know we need new technology to truly make this vision become fully realized. And we’ve been working with DICE to make Frostbite 2 the foundation for the engine that is going to power Dragon Age 3.”
