Reiterates that a new Dragon Age "something" is in the works, I missed the original announcement apparently?

At 58 minute mark, mentions Jade Empire & supposed sequel. Basically it existed in the very earliest stages, was considered, but it sounds like they got too busy with Mass Effect & Dragon Age.

Also says he has an idea in his head what the game would be, but the game's (Jade Empire's) entire creative team is working on Dragon Age.

Glad to hear Dragon Age is in the works. Possible unveiling next year?

It's a shame Jade Empire hasn't gone to full production, I really hope we get this someday it was one of the most unique RPGs Bioware have ever made.

I worked with an artist who did concept stuff for Jade Empire 2. He said it was set in a future version of that world - a blade runnerish SF setup. He said it was amazing. I am sad because I would murder to see that.

Don't think DA will be unveiled next year, they will want to focus all attention on Anthem first. I expect an E3 2019 reveal.

I may be alone, but I would gladly sacrifice Dragon Age for more Jade Empire. Fite me.
You're clearly not alone.

Spot on above to about it being one of the most unique things BW has ever made. It really was cool. I don't remember a ton about it, just that I beat it.

And that there's some drunk guy near the beginning called three sheets dutong.

Would gladly play another one of those. I've honestly had my Dragon Age fill with Inquisition for awhile. If they put that one on the back burner for some years, that'd be alright.

Eurogamer even had an interview with the writer of the game, Alexis Kennedy (Sunless Sea) a month ago where he talks about the challenges of writing the next Dragon Age
Wait, what?

The Sunless Sea guy is writing the next Dragon Age?

This takes my completely deflated hype for this franchise and at least pumps some life into it.

Give me some narrative agency and I'm there dazy zero!

He's on the writing team, not lead Writer or something

More Bioware?

eeehh, I dunno... They need to really step it up. They've flopped this gen so far.

That sounds a lot better than just not-asia like they had before honestly.

Can't even imagine how sick a new DA is going to be. I imagine they learned a lot from Andromeda, and Inquisition. There's no way they could release another dud.

..right? I'm pumped.

I'll be the lone person in here to defend Dragon Age. I thought Inquisition was great, and I'm hyped for where the next one will be going.

Hrmmm...Dragon Age...I will see what they show. Despite having completed the first and third games, I have no particular interest in the series. That may change depending ono what they show.
