While the team is unwilling to talk platforms at the moment they have said that the game — subtitled: Inquisition — will be made by the same team that made Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II.
Bioware has also announced that the game will be powered by a shiny new Frostbite 2-based engine. And this will allow for a “more expansive world with better visuals and more customization.”
An announcement from Mark Darrah states:
I am pleased to confirm that we are, in fact, working on the next Dragon Age game. Not a big surprise to most of you, I know. We have been working on it in some way for about two years now with the bulk of our efforts ramping up about 18 months ago.
Part of that effort has involved you, our fans, and the feedback you’ve provided for Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II, and their DLC. We’ve visited message boards, read reviews, and we’ve gone to events to have direct face to face conversations with some of our most passionate fans. We’ve been listening, and we will continue to listen.
Recently, I said that we didn’t want to talk about Dragon Age III unless we had something to show. I’m trying to stick to that plan and won’t be revealing much today. That said, a lot of information and rumors have surfaced recently and we don’t want to hide from them. There are a BUNCH of things that I really want to share with you but I want to do this right, and doing it right requires some more time.
So I have two questions at this point.
First: Does the lack of platform announcement mean they’re waiting on the next generation?
Second: How well have they listened to fans on their input since Dragon Age II? I know many Bioware and DA fans who were not happy with that last offering and who may be hard to convince this time around.
