Dragon Age Entering "Next Phase"

A BioWare Social Network post from BioWare's Mark Darrah where the Executive Producer on Dragon Age II explains the team is moving past DA2 and on to "the next phase of Dragon Age’s future" (thanks GameInformer). Here's word:

And finally, while we will still be keeping an eye out for any issues that might crop up in DAII and supporting the community should any emergencies should arise, we’re moving the entire team’s focus to the next phase of Dragon Age’s future.

You’ve most certainly heard the rumors floating around, and unfortunately I can’t really comment on them. However, what I can say is that we’ve been thinking a lot about Dragon Age – what it means, and where it could go. This past year, we’ve spent a lot of time both going back to the “BioWare vault” of games and re-examining them, and looking at some new possibilities that today’s industry allows.

With that, the next thing for the Dragon Age team members and I to do is hear from you, and not just on the forums, or Facebook, or Twitter. We’ll be attending a number of conventions and gatherings, including PAX East in April. The most valuable thing we can get out of those meetings is to hear from you on those same topics – what does Dragon Age mean to you, and where would you like to see it go? We’re excited to hear what you have to say!

On behalf of the entire team, we are incredibly eager to reach the moment when we can tell you more and show you where we are taking Dragon Age. But for now, thank you for your continued support, and we will be back here with more as soon as we can.

AAAAAAGGGGHHHHHH!!!! I SEE IT! My psychic vision is kicking in...I see!!!....

- Multiplayer, because that is something nobody wants but EA wants to shove down everybodies pants
- romances everything, you will even get to romance the horse you cannot ride
- dlc, don't worry, you know those super giant plot holes and important story aspects that are critical to the story? Yea, you have to buy those to know wtf is going on and get the complete experience.
- action, action, action, oh, was this an rpg? um, well you can choose the clothes you...oh wait, who are we kidding, you cannot even choose that.
- no inventory, what do you think this is? The 90's? We got rid of that all together, let us choose for you.
- origin, yea, we know that everybody loves steam and gog and honestly they are better than origin in every way, but how is EA supposed to compete fairly? or keep milking you for money, or be able to turn off your games if you say anything bad about their games on your forums. Or be able to shut them off after a few years unless you buy their game insurance (which will probably change to a subscription model later) What, you think you OWN your games...hahaha
- ladlaw, he did such a job on DA2 (seriously, after that turd, why are they letting him even near this project?) they decided to let him make the 3rd installment.
- Stupid rage inducing ending that makes no sense, makes NOBODY happy and doesn't give closure (thats for the NEW policy of selling ending DLC), because you loved it so much in DA2 AND ME3, it now will be mandatory.
- voice protag, - Yea, eaware could give you a ton of text dialog choices that more reflect you taste and based on your characters stats, instead eaware is going to dumb it down to two choices so that its easier and saves money, the hell with RPG's, this is all about the cinematic/action experience. Screw this roleplaying stuff.
- no choices, whether you choose left or right all roads will lead to the same exact outcome with different collar special affects.
- a whopping two choices for the voiced protag, blue for good and red for bad. I know its hard to remember.
- choices will be dumbed down to one liners text that have nothing to do with what is actually said.
- cinematic baby, yea, Enjoy DA3 the movie...oh, and we will even let you play between the action cut scenes
- no character bonding except at random times with random events that make no sense and with characters you don't care about.
- Shallow world, everything might look ok, but its pretty dead with little to do
- ugly cartoon colors, da2 on crack
- a gazillion useless go fetch items that are nothing more than time sinks (planet scanning anyone?)

AHHHHH, I see more...wait, every paid(bribed) media media will give it near perfect scores while actual gamers will trash it. The forums will be divided with the gamers calling the turd a turd, while the fanboys, paid media, and paid forum posts will defend it and claim the haters are children that can see the greatness of DA3. At this time EA will have a huge DA3 sale or bundle it up with another popular game to prop up sales to show its investors it made money.
