In Electronic Arts’ press release for Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, Bioware general manager Aaryn Flynn notes:
…we know we need new technology to truly make this vision become fully realized. And we’ve been working with DICE to make Frostbite 2 the foundation for the engine that is going to power Dragon Age 3.
Mass Effect 3 pushed Bioware’s traditional “connected shoeboxes” level design as far as it was going to go, and it did it long after it should have gone. To see the Frostbite 2 engine in action, boot up Battlefield 3. And now imagine how it will look in a game scheduled for late next year. That’s what Bioware is finally working with.
