Recently, MTVMultiplayer had the opportunity to sit down and talk to BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk about the upcoming RPG from the company, Dragon Age: Origins. Like most console owners without a decent PC gaming rig, I was greatly disappointed that the game appeared to be PC exclusive. According to Zeschuk, there is a ray of light for console gamers in the future of the franchise.
PC for now is what we’re focusing on, but there is a console future for the franchise. We haven’t really talked about what that’s going to be, but one thing we’re focused on, as folks probably have seen in regards to “Mass Effect” on the PC, is whenever we do a platform choice, we’re very definitive and very specific. We don’t splash it across all the platforms. Like in the case with “Mass” PC we worked really hard to make it even better than the console version. The PC gives us more tools to do that with. That s the approach we’re taking with “Dragon Age” and other games at BioWare.
At least BioWare is willing to entertain the idea of a console release for a PC-centric franchise. My eyes always get misty when I think of possibly missing out on both Starcraft 2 and Diablo III. Hopefully Blizzard can think of a plan for future releases on the same scale that BioWare is with Dragon Age. Until then, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for all three titles.
