BioWare Surprised by Fan Reaction to Dragon Age 2

Posted on September 30, 2011 AT 05:56am

THE BUZZ: BioWare has revealed that it was caught off-guard by the way that core fans reacted to Dragon Age 2, but are happy with how many new fans they collected.

Dragon Age 2 came under severe scrutiny from the franchise’s core fans who saw the game as a step back from Dragon Age: Origins. Ray Muzyka, Co-founder of BioWare, told Xbox World magazine:

“Our goal is to take all the feedback we get on any of our franchises and use it to make the next game in the franchise better.”

“Dragon Age 2 was incredibly polarizing and it caught us off-guard, honestly. It appealed to a new fanbase and we were delighted by that, but we’ve heard fans who wanted more of the Origins experience. We have to take all that feedback and find a way to marry those together, so we can bring everyone on the journey with us.”

EGM’s TAKE: Dragon Age 2 wasn’t so much of a dumbing down as an attempt to move in a new direction, sadly the fans didn’t take kindly to it.
