Rob Bartel, the principal designer at BioWare, has told MCV that last year's PC and console release Dragon Age was the most successful game the studio has ever produced – trumping high-profile sci-fi release Mass Effect in the process.
The boast also places Dragon Age above the likes of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire and Baldur's gate.
Dragon Age was an extremely successful title for us – last November it was the single most globally successful title we've put out to date,” he confirmed at EA's recent European showcase.
This is one of our two primary IPs in the Edmonton studio in Canada, and then we're working on the Old Republic down in Austen. So Dragon Age is a very big part of what we do and for what the future for BioWare will hold for sure.”
The news comes after the studio lifted the lid on the game's first proper sequel, Dragon Age 2.
