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?

Im expecting nothing less than great from this game. Dragon Age hit with a bang and sadly (without good reason) the things that made it great were taken away in 2. Hopefully theyve learned why the first had such success.

About this numbering thing. Im ok without the number, since they have a good reason. If it was a direct sequel I would expect it to be there though. But I do wonder. Does anyone know where the story takes place in accordance with the first two? Is it even related?

The whole series now makes no sense at all. Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II, Dragon Age: Inquisition.

They are all kind of haphazardly tossed about. Someone needs to get a handle on this universe.

there doing it so when this ends up being a massive spit to the face like bioware has become infamous for, they have a excuse for it.
that, and slapping 3 on it makes it seem like their milking the series especially considering how young the series is.
this isent DA3 for the exact same reasons the new die hard movie was not called die hard 5.

I thought it was more or less a direct continuation of the DA2 story. Now I am confused.

Ummmm… On the trailer they showed Morigan but I opted to stab her in DAO I'm hoping its a continuation of DAO because DA2 suuucked both in story and in gameplay.
