The lights are on
Speaking to PC Gamer, BioWare CEO Dr. Ray Muzyka spoke a bit about what's to come for the Dragon Age series. Regarding the mixed reaction to Dragon Age 2, he said “It’s interesting because the first reviews – the number of the reviews was also very polarized, awesomely so. Lots of 90+ reviews, we also got fans that I think in some cases who were expecting more Dragon Age: Origins, and there was a misalignment of expectation there."
In terms of where the series is going next, Muzyka stated “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.”
The next installment in the Dragon Age series most likely won't be seen for a while, but fans should feel comfortable knowing BioWare is listening to feedback on their previous titles.
