Game Delay 2: Electric Boogaloo! Just moments after announcing that Battlefield Hardline is to be delayed until early 2015, BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition was announced to be delayed, as well. Don’t fret for too long, however, as the release date has been pushed back only one month, to November 18th.
“I’m privileged to be a part of a team that has been working very hard to surpass every measure they’ve set for themselves,” Dragon Age: Inquisition Executive Producer Mark Darrah wrote in today’s news update. “That has meant completing huge amounts of game content, fixing bugs both big and small, and improving the overall experience. 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.”
Again, just like what I said with Battlefield Hardline, delays can be good. It means more competition in November and more balance in October. The newest Dragon Age entry has to answer back to skeptics who may be wary of the quality of the game, as Dragon Age II receive critical acclaim among the press despite mass disapproval from those who had to actually purchase the game with their own money.
We’ll have to see if this is the case when Dragon Age: Inquisition is released on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 18th. For BioWare’s sake, let’s hope the extra month pays off.
