Production on Dragon Age 3 is underway, BioWare has announced.
The developer posted a statement on Twitter looking for environment artists to work on the third main title in EA’s RPG franchise.
I’m looking for exceptional environment artists to join me at BioWare Edmonton, Canada to work on Dragon Age3,” said BioWare’s senior director of creative development Alistair McNally.
The first game in the series, Dragon Age: Origins, arrived in November 2009. BioWare previously told MCV this was the most successful title the developer had ever produced.
Dragon Age II went straight to No.1 in the GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 when it was released in March. Both titles are single-player action RPGs published by EA. An expansion to the original, Dragon Age Origins: Awakening, went on sale last year.
Both the original Dragon Age game and the sequel were released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, so it’s likely the third game will arrive on the same formats. A release date has not yet been announced.
BioWare is also currently working on sci-fi adventure Mass Effect 3 which is due for release in Q1 2012, and online PC RPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. They will both be published by EA.
