BioWare, have announced that Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, the next chapter in the award-winning RPG franchise, is in development and is expected to launch in late 2013. There’s no word yet on which platforms the Frostbite 2 powered game is coming to.
“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.”
According to EA the Dragon Age franchise has received over 80 awards from critics around the world, and has sold over 8 million copies to date.
