They're using Frostbite 2, it was announced at the same time they showed some incredibly vague concept art. I'm not sure that's good for anything other than visuals though. Frostbite 2 is very unfriendly to modding and there are practically no community unpackers for its file formats. I suspect this is a centralize dev time and save money by allowing multiple studios to interact on the game thing.

Well, the Frostbite 2 engine is pretty damn good for FPS, dunno how good it'll be for something like DA. I guess the C&C game will come out before DA3, which should give some idea on how well it'll function.

Still, the engine was never really the problem with DA2, so while I'm not disappointed they are switching, I'm not going to assume it'll make anything better. Since I'm going back and replaying the BG series (I caved and picked it up), it's hard to imagine we'll see anything that good at this point. I'll settle for as good as DA1 - but even that's not terribly likely.
