Sadly, Dragon Age: Inquisition was absent from E3’s show floor. The only time EA spoke about the game was during their press conference the day before the show began. During a new trailer for the game it was revealed that the title had changed from Dragon Age III: Inquisition to just plain old Dragon Age: Inquisition. A lot of people probably didn’t even notice. Did you notice? I sure as hell didn’t.
IGN has spoken to EA Labels main man Frank Gibeau about the decision to remove the numerical portion from the title. According to Gibeau, dropping the ‘3’ made more sense for this particular story arc: “We felt like we wanted to bring more attention to the word Inquisition, because that’s more the story arc of what it’s like. There’s a whole bunch of gameplay and features and big story choices related to how you go through this Inquisition that happens in the world.”
In case that wasn’t clear enough, this isn’t a direct sequel to Dragon Age II. Instead, this is “an all-new chapter inside of the Dragon Age universe.” Well Dragon Age fans, is that a good thing or a bad thing or a “I really couldn’t give a rat’s ass just give me more Dragon Age” thing?
