BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka has described the upcoming Dragon Age 3 as a combination between Dragon Age 2 and Dragon Age: Origins.

"The team is going to have some things that are going to surprise both sets of fans, both core fans and new fans with a marriage of the best from both games. One of the core values of BioWare is that we take feedback really seriously, and we know that the core fans who were expecting more Dragon Age Origins – we have to respond to that – we're not willing to ignore that, we're going to take that head on," he told PC Gamer.

"We also have an obligation to our new fans, the ones who were surprised and delighted with some new approaches and accessibility in terms of action and combat.

"What we need to do as developers is take that feedback from both sets of fans to heart and see about marrying that in future games in the Dragon Age franchise. And we look forward more to talking about that in the future."

BioWare confirmed the development of Dragon Age 3 earlier in May.

Didn't say which decade, 1950's perhaps? Not 60's because Spacewar effectively had an inventory.

Yeah, I seem to remember the line "best RPG of the decade" being used at some point. Boggle.

It will require something *incredibly* innovative to get me to return to that series. The combat, plot, linearity, sourcing ingredients... everything in DA2 was terribly implemented.

Awakening was well-done - linear, but with a much more interesting setting/story.

I lost the last vestiges of respect for PC Gamer when they gave DA2 94%.

DA3 is going to have to be something really special to get me back on board, and I'll definitely be waiting for a variety of reviews before I go near it.

I think they need to not only take player feedback into consideration, but also what was said in reviews.

Mainly, having a little less linearity. And if have more excellent moments like where Anders does, that thing.

DA 2 was mediocre, which was a disappointment, when you compare it to it's predecessor which is one of my favourite medieval RPGs.

Going from Dragon Age 2, pretty wise thing to do. I liked DA2, but it felt smaller than compared to Origins.

Pretty much the approach they're taking with Mass Effect 3, then?
