Electronic Arts has announced Dragon Age 3 Inquisition, the next chapter in the very successful RPG Dragon Age franchise. The franchise, which launched in 2009 with Dragon Age: Origins followed by Dragon Age II in 2011 which, has sold over 8 million copies along with extensions into novels, an animated film, comic books and Dragon Age collectibles. .
According to Aaryn Flynn, General Manager of BioWare Edmonton and BioWare Montreal, work on Dragon Age 3: Inquisition has been going on for almost two years now.
As its predecessors, Dragon Age 3 Inquisition will be focused on deep RPG gameplay and will be built on EA’s Frostbite 2 engine. Frostbite 2 Engine also powers other first-person shooters such as Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. With Frostbite 2, the developers will be able to create a very powerful and interactive gameplay for Dragon Age an even more expansive world, extremely rich visuals, higher responsiveness, and more customization options.
Update: The team has taken a conscious decision to not call it Dragon age 3: Inquisition but instead call it Dragon age : Inquisition. They felt that the game is an all new chapter in the Dragon Age saga as opposed to the storyline etc. from Dragon Age 1 and 2.
