No one expects the Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragon Age was just an awesome RPG. Dragon Age 2? Not so much. So let's hope BioWare gets the third one right.
Electronic Arts has announced that Dragon Age III: Inquisition
will be coming late next year. At over a few years of week, the team has taken the feedback from their previous games and hope to deliver a lot better experience.
For the engine, BioWare's going with FrostBite 2, which powers Battlefield 3. Now, that's peaked my interested a bit on the visuals if they're going to use that. A few games already use the engine, but I don't think anyone of them have been role playing games.
So, I'm sort of excited to hear about the next Dragon Age game. I know BioWare's capable of great things and they really need to rebound with the third game. Let's hope we see some shots soon to see how big of a jump from the second it is to the third.
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.
