Last week marked the one year anniversary of the release of Dragon Age II. Over the past year, BioWare has released countless downloadable content for the game including weapons and mission packs, and they’ve corrected several of the game’s issues in the form of patches and updates.
Dragon Age II executive producer Mark Darrah today announced on the BioWare Social Network forums that his team is now done making content for the game and will be moving on to the “next phase of Dragon Age’s future.”
“You’ve most certainly heard the rumors floating around,” Darrah writes, “and unfortunately I can’t really comment on them. However, what I can say is that we’ve been thinking a lot about Dragon Age – what it means, and where it could go. This past year, we’ve spent a lot of time both going back to the “BioWare vault” of games and re-examining them, and looking at some new possibilities that today’s industry allows.”
Whether his comment means the next Dragon Age game will be a departure from what we’ve seen in the past couple of years or whether it simply means the next game will incorporate more RPG or action elements from other BioWare titles is still unknown.
Darrah and his team also will be attending PAX East and other gatherings to receive input from their fans because, as we all know, BioWare likes to listen to their fans.
