If Alexis Kennedy's words last month weren't enough to prove work on a new Dragon Age is well underway, its creative director Mike Laidlaw's suggestion that "it's no secret we're doing something" with the series is a sure bet. Now it seems development on the elusive Inquisition follow-up is gathering pace.
"Something is happening with Dragon Age," said Laidlaw to The 1099 podcast (opens in new tab) host Josiah Renaudin, before going on to say he and his team are "hiring a lot of people" at present.
During the conversation, Laidlaw also admits BioWare had plans for Jade Empire 2—which were ultimately delayed as a result of work on Dragon Age.
"We certainly had plans for a Dragon Age 2," says Laidlaw. "Which I can’t talk about, but it existed. Jade Empire 2 was talked about. It was certainly considered. I think it’s still possible there could be a Jade 2."
