Dragon Age: Inqusition’s Release Date Delayed
Only a few months out from its impended release and Dragon Age: Inquisition has seen further delay. The game sequel has already been pushed back from previously planned dates, including Fall of last year. Though this newest delay is far less concerning, as it’s only a few weeks instead of months or years – from what was supposed to be October 7, the game will now see release November 18.
Executive producer for the game Mark Darrah explained, “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.“
Though Watch Dogs is a recent example that was criticized – both for its extended hype, and then continued delays – this honestly doesn’t seem to be as troubling. Not only are delays typical enough in the industry for this one to barely register, but it’s also short enough a span of time for BioWare’s need to do some last-minute polishing ring true. And in the meantime, that gives players an extra month to replay Origins and II in preparation for Inquisition‘s release.
