BioWare: Dragon Age III to be a Mixture of Origins and II
It is no secret that BioWare is already at work on Dragon Age III; job openings for the game have already been listed. It is also no secret that Dragon Age II was unable to live up to all the hype that it mounted on itself. Nonetheless, PC Gamer sat down with Dr. Ray Muzyka, CEO of BioWare, at Gamescom and asked him about the company's plans for Dragon Age III.
Muzyka stated, "One of the core values of Bioware is that we take feedback really seriously, and we know that the core fans who were expecting more Dragon Age Origins – we have to respond to that – we're not willing to ignore that, we're going to take that head on. Don't get ahead of yourself though; Dragon Age III won't be exactly like Origins. Muzyka continued, "We also have an obligation to our new fans, the ones who were surprised and delighted with some new approaches and accessibility in terms of action and combat."
He concluded, "The goal for Dragon Age III then is a mixture of both Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II. Muzyka elaborated, "What we need to do as developers is take that feedback from both sets of fans to heart and see about marrying that in future games in the Dragon Age franchise. I think that the team has actually got a great plan. I think the team is going to have some things that are going to surprise both sets of fans, both core fans and new fans with a marriage of these… the best from both games, Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2. And we look forward more to talking about that in the future."
