Mike Laidlaw has posted an update on the development of “Dragon Age Inquisition.” According to a conversation that took place from his personal Twitter page on April 18, the creative director was asked if there’s a possibility that the production of the action role-playing game could be completed early and come out faster than expected. He replied by saying that the scenario is highly unlikely as Bioware could debug, polish, re-tweak and test several elements of the video game even after the completion of the initial development process.

Mike Laidlaw went on to confirm that he is able to play through all of “Dragon Age Inquisition.” The project has progressed well enough that his current role is to test the video game and evaluate any potential improvements. Bioware confirmed late last year that the main campaign can be played from beginning to end. It now appears that the rest of the game has been completed as well.

“Dragon Age Inquisition” adds several new elements to the foundations set by “Dragon Age Origins” and “Dragon Age 2.” The environments are bigger, more interactive and have more paths when compared to the previous two games. A new playable race, the Qunari, was also added to the character customization options. Furthermore, the third main installment will retain some of the features of the two previous games such as the tactical planning from “Dragon Age Origins” as well as the real-time combat from “Dragon Age 2.” A few familiar faces from the previous titles would be featured as well.

Although the development is going well for “Dragon Age Inquisition,” the video game is still most likely set to come out in the originally-planned fall release window. Electronic Arts will be responsible for publishing and distributing the software product for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
