'Dragon Age 2: Origins Harder' could be happening


It is said that curiosity let the cat out of the bag. OK. Perhaps it’s not said like that, but I really wanted an excuse to confuse the ancient saying for this particular situation because it applies. In a recent Mass Effect message board post, a curious BioWare fan asked the studios’ writers what they are doing right now. A writer, named Patrick Weekes responded, mentioning that some writers are doing bug fixes or play-testing Mass Effect 2, while others are “working on planet descriptions or codex entries” and downloadable content. He also said that some writers have moved on, specifically to Dragon Age 2 or “the MMO" (presumably Star Wars: The Old Republic).

Wait. What? Dragon Age 2?

We’re not sure if this is a toasted toads confirmation of an unnannounced sequel to the unreleased Dragon Age: Origins. “Dragon Age 2” could be a flashy name for a secret project completely unrelated to Origins that features another dark fantasy setting and, uh, dragons. Also, wizards of the First Order.

But, it probably isn’t.

Dragon Age 2 sounds great judging by what we've seen of the game thus far. We’ve contacted BioWare to get official-official confirmation of the sequel. The studio did not respond immediately, but we'll let you know when we know. That's the toasted toads truth.

[Update: As many of you pointed out in the comments, Dragon Age: Origins could be a part of a series. BioWare hasn't been shy about that, but, you know, the sequel wasn't confirmed -- or at least we didn't know it was being worked on -- until now. BioWare did get back to us re:Weekes' words and the search for official confirmation of Dragon Age 2. A representative told Destructoid, “We’ve always considered Dragon Age: Origins to be part of a franchise. However, we don’t comment on unannounced projects.”]
