Dragon Age II "Exalted March" Expansion Cancelled

BioWare's Mark Darrah tweets word that a Dragon Age II expansion called Exalted March was cancelled as part of the just announced transition the developers of the RPG sequel are making to the "next phase" of the series (thanks GameSpot). Word is:

We did have plans for an expansion pack to DA2 but, other DA opportunities came up. There were even shirts! It was called Exalted March.

There were lots of problems with DA2, spawning waves of enemies like they did could easily have been overlooked if the rest of the game was up to snuff.

Yeah, I can agree with that. The "rabbits on speed"-paced combat, the removal of customization, the removal of the tactical view, the embarrassingly recycled environments, the canned main character... these are far worse offenses.

I have to assume you guys didn't play DA2 on Nightmare difficulty. On Nightmare, a single assassin could kill your mages or rogues in single backstab. Having assassins or other elite-level enemies randomly spawn out of thin air could very easily screw you. As Verno said, you ended up saving all your good spells/abilities because if you used them on an early wave, you'd inevitably get screwed.
