Dragon Age III has supposedly been delayed to 2014, according to Gameindustry.biz.
Following yesterday's earnings report from EA, which revealed that BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic was down to 1.3 million active subscribers, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has noted that the MMO has had another effect besides giving some investors pause; Pachter believes the Star Wars title has ultimately caused a delay in the development of the next Dragon Age.Think of the positive side of things. This time they can say it took them 3 years to make the game instead of churning it out in a year.
"Dragon Age III appears to have slipped to FY:14. We had previously expected the next Dragon Age to be released in Q4:13, two years after its predecessor. However, we believe that a significant portion of the BioWare team responsible for the game was reassigned to Star Wars in order to create content and fix bugs to keep the game's audience engaged," Pachter commented.
