According to executive producer Mark Darrah, the delay will mean the game is “all the better for it.”
“Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever,” said Darrah. “It was that goal that motivated many of our decisions: moving to Frostbite, bringing race choice and customization back, improving tactical camera, building a team of characters whose relationships evolve based on your actions, and most importantly, crafting an epic, nation-spanning story that both draws upon past games and takes you to many new places in the realm of Thedas.
“This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero’s choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on.”
Dragon Age: Inquisition will now come out on November 21 in Europe.
