Dragon Age Inquisition delayed until November
Well, I suppose that as far as delays go, this one isn’t so bad. Dragon Age Inquisition, the hotly anticipated third game in the Dragon Age franchise, has been delayed by developer Bioware until mid November. Read on for the details.
The announcement was made earlier today over on the official Dragon Age website. In a post by executive producer Mark Darrah, the new release date was moved from October 8th to November 21st. Although the delay only amounts to a few weeks, Darrah insists that the game will be worth the extra wait.
“Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever. It was that goal that motivated many of our decisions: moving to Frostbite, bringing race choice and customization back, improving tactical camera, building a team of characters whose relationships evolve based on your actions, and most importantly, crafting an epic, nation-spanning story that both draws upon past games and takes you to many new places in the realm of Thedas.”
Darrah goes on to state that the extra development time will be devoted to polishing the game’s environments, deepening the emotional impact of your character’s decisions, and improving the quality of the overall experience.
“This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on.”
So definitely some bummer news, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. We can all hold out another month and a half, can’t we? ….Can’t we?
