Following the critical and commercial success of BioWare's Dragon Age: Inquisition, publisher Electronic Arts said Monday that it sees a "huge opportunity" for the series going forward.
Speaking today during the 2015 Technology, Internet & Media Conference, Jorgensen confirmed that EA will not release a new Dragon Age game in 2015. That's not altogether surprising, given that Inquisition was only just released in November, and that building a new game with the scale and ambition of what you expect from BioWare would take time.
However, while it's not time to talk about specific plans for the next game, it's clear that EA sees the potential of the series and is eyeing new ways to bring players into the franchise.
"Longer-term, we're very excited," Jorgensen said. "BioWare, they just won Game of the Year at the DICE Awards. We're very excited about the success of that team and what we can do with that team. I think there's a huge opportunity for [Dragon Age]."
While an official unit sales number has not been announced for Inquisition, EA is calling the game BioWare's most successful launch--in terms of copies sold at release--of all time.
Jorgensen also teased that BioWare, in addition to whatever it might be working on next in the Dragon Age series, has a "couple of new pieces of IP that are very exciting." He didn't elaborate more, though one of these projects is likely the new BioWare franchise most recently teased back at E3 2014 in June.
