After a few early leaks hinting at its existence, we now have official word from Electronic Arts and BioWare that the third installment in the Dragon Age franchise is currently in the works. Dragon Age 3: Inquisition is the official title of the game and thanks to a the power of a new engine, aims to be leaps and bounds better than prior entries in the series.
The announcement was first made on the franchise’s official website and includes a letter from BioWare’s Mark Darrah, detailing what little info he can currently share about the game. The information is as follows:
- 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 armour and followers. Yeah, that kind of customisation. We´ve started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this.
