Here's Why EA Dropped The "3" From Dragon Age: Inquisition
If you didn't already know, what was once "Dragon Age III: Inquisition" is now just Dragon Age: Inquisition. No 3.
And why? Well, according to what EA Labels president Frank Gibeau told IGN, it was a "tactical marketing decision." It's more about referencing the story arc rather than pegging the new title as a sequel.
"I think there’s always this debate over numbers versus no numbers, what works, what doesn’t work. 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.
It’s a tactical marketing decision. There wasn’t anything that strategic about it, to be blunt. We just wanted to draw more attention to the fact that Inquisition is an all-new chapter inside of the Dragon Age universe, as opposed to people expecting a follow-on to Dragon Age 1 and 2 in a literal, linear sense."
The anticipated new entry in the acclaimed role-playing franchise was recently delayed until Fall 2014. However, it was also confirmed that Inquisition is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as the PS4 and Xbox One. It's another one of those cross-generation games that everyone gets a shot at. You should have a next-gen system by then, though, right?
