Dragon Age: Inquisition delayed to November

BioWare's fantasy RPG pushed back for further development

Dragon Age: Inquisition's release has been delayed by more than a month, EA announced today.

The third title in the RPG series is now planned for release on November 18 in North America and November 21 in Europe.


"Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever," executive producer Mark Darrah said in an official update.

"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."

The game's original release date of October 7 in North America and October 10 in Europe was announced in April. Darrah said the delay will let BioWare polish "the experience we want you to see," making open spaces more engaging, choices more emotionally impactful, and overall experiences as good as possible across all supported platforms.

The announcement was made alongside a similar announcement for Battlefield Hardline, which has been pushed into early 2015.

Recent video walkthroughs of Redcliffe Castle and the Hinterlands shown the game's blend of storytelling, combat and exploration.

Inquisition casts players as the Inquisitor, leader of a force dedicated to finding and destroying the source of Fade rifts which threaten to consume the world. It's planned for release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
