Dragon Age III: Inquisition has been confirmed to be in development following a post from executive producer Mark Darrah on September 17th, 2012, and has been in development since 2010. Bioware has confirmed that Dragon Age III will utilize the Frostbite 3 engine from DICE.
Setting and Protagonist
Like its predecessors, Dragon Age III will be set in Thedas and will feature a new protagonist. Whereas Dragon Age: Origins took place in Ferelden and Dragon Age II in Kirkwall (and the Free Marches), this time the adventure will most likely take place in the land of Orlais. The game will be set after Dragon Age II and the novel Dragon Age: Asunder, in which both the magi of Thedas and the Seekers of Truth, leading the Templar Order, have broken off from The Chantry and prepare to go to war with each other.
On the BioWare panel at Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo 2012, creative director Mike Laidlaw stated that "customization is going to be bigger than Dragon Age: Origins", and also include "follower customization". On the same panel, lead writer David Gaider mentioned that "You will be human", and that "backgrounds will be in Dragon Age 3 even though you will be human, it's not playable but it does significant impact on the story". Cinematic designer John Perry also stated that "he's had a longer pre-production on DA3 than any other BioWare project he's worked on". Perry also mentioned that "just one level in DA3 is as big as all of DA2's levels combined".
