EA and BioWare have just announced the third entry in the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age 3: Inquisition. The second sequel makes use of the Frostbite 2 engine, features RPG gameplay, and more.

Dragon Age 3: Inquisition launches next year.

We’ve posted the full announcement below with more details.

 

EDMONTON, Alberta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BioWare, a Label of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today announced Dragon Age™ 3: Inquisition, the next chapter in the award-winning role-playing game (RPG) franchise, is in development at BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal. Coming in late 2013, Dragon Age 3: Inquisition combines the storytelling legacy BioWare is known for, with deep RPG gameplay, all on a brand new RPG game engine underpinned by EA’s critically-acclaimed 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.”

The Dragon Age franchise has received over 80 awards from critics around the world, and has sold over 8 million copies to date*. Created by BioWare, the property has spawned many novels, an animated film, comic books, collectibles and more since Dragon Age: Origins launched in 2009.

1. So did Dragon Age 2

2. But DA2 only came out a year and a half ago? I hope he's rounding up with that "almost"... Unless he's talking about pre-production happening simultaneously with DA2 (which I hope they've scrapped if true).

3. I really wonder how that is split up between the first two games.

@ Announcement

Although my post may not seem to indicate as such so far, I'll keep in eye on it with hopeful optimism. I did the same with ME3 and from everything I've read, they seemed to have improved many things taking "good" things from both prior of from the franchise. Let's see if they can do the same here (though to be fair ME2 was received better than the first by most while this was absolutely trashed in the second entry). They have nowhere to go but up. It's just how high up they choose to go that remains to be seen at this point.



Wonder if they are doing a WiiU-version

Prediction: PS4 will be more powerful and cheaper than XBOX ONE

I think with the new engine we might see something cool again, and hopefully the mean real RPG gameplay, not *push a button and something awesome happens* +cutscenes and rehashed scenarios.

Am I the only one... Etc.

I'm not really here!

...who does not care?



I wonder if you get to change the world by the things you did in DA2... Because that would be sweet.

That's all I want to know. Well, that and if it is going back to the Origins type of game. Wii U could be on par with PC, gameplay wise, thanks to the touchscreen.
