With sales of Mass Effect 2 having made headlines for its record-break earlier in the year, it may come as a surprise to hear that its developer, Bioware, is saying that its most successful is actually the more traditional RPG Dragon Age: Origins. The company’s Principal Director, Rob Bartel, recently spoke with MCV and claimed the Baldur’s Gate-inspired dark fantasy romp was Bioware’s highest selling title to date.
“Dragon Age was an extremely successful title for us – last November it was the single most globally successful title we’ve put out to date,” he confirmed at EA’s recent European showcase. “This is one of our two primary IPs in the Edmonton studio in Canada, and then we’re working on the Old Republic down in Austin. So Dragon Age is a very big part of what we do and for what the future for BioWare will hold for sure.”
