According to Kotaku, a number of big announcements may be coming from Electronic Arts in the near future, including word that Dragon Age will be getting a multiplayer mode. The arena-based game will feature playable dragons and make use of DICE's Frostbite 2 engine, claims the gossip. 

It's unsure if the mode will be its own game or part of Dragon Age 3, but it furthers EA's apparent plans to put multiplayer into everything. If it's true, of course. 

There's also a lot of talk about Dead Space and yet more plans to expand the brand like crazy. It's been said that a fully-fledged first-person shooter could be on the way, as well as a game based around piloting spacecraft. This would be in addition to Dead Space 3, which will feature co-op (sigh), and a new project called "Uncharted in Space."

It's been said that Dead Space 3 almost got canceled because the last game was not exactly as successful as Uncharted. That's EA for you, too busy looking side-to-side and not enough time spent looking at itself. That company needs to stop with the jealous glances and actually concentrate on not being the game industry's biggest glans. 

Although these rumors are dramatic, they all seem fairly plausible. EA clearly wants multiplayer in everything and has been pushing the online passes really hard. Additionally, it's been trying to force Dead Space's success for years, with movies, comics, toys, and novels. Saturating fans with Dead Space content is nothing new, so while these are all still rumors, I'd not be shocked if they all came to pass.
