The as of yet unannounced Dragon Age III will "surprise and delight" fans of both the original and the sequel, promises developer BioWare. Speaking with CVG in an interview, the dev assured fans that feedback is being taken seriously and that the next instalment will be a "best of breed" amalgamation of the two games.
"I think the team has actually got a great plan," BioWare's Ray Muzyka said, not that they've actually announced anything, he notes, "we've not announced Dragon Age 3 formally or anything."
"I think the team are going to have some things that will surprise and delight both set of fans - our core fans and our new fans - with a marriage, best of breed from both games, Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II. We'll look forward to talking more about that."
"One of our core values at BioWare is humility and that means we take feedback really seriously," he said, referring to feedback received on Dragon Age II and it's more streamlined, accessible nature. "We know that the core fans who were expecting more Dragon Age: Origins [from the sequel] - we have to listen to them. We have to respond to that.
"We're not going to ignore it. We're going to take that head-on. But we also have an obligation to our new fans, the ones who we surprised and delighted with some new approaches, accessibility and intense action combat.
"What we need to do as a developer is take the feedback from both sets of fans to heart and see about marrying that in the future games in the Dragon Age franchise."
