Bioware has announced six of the eight characters that the player will be able to romance within Dragon Age: Inquisition. With only two love interests remaining, many gamers have begun to speculate that the developer is holding off from announcing the final romance options because they are a big surprise or their relationship could be considered a story spoiler. However, Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider discounted these rumors on his personal blog on July 30 by revealing that there isn’t a hidden reason why the developer has yet to announce the remaining love interests.
Gaider confirmed that there is nothing that makes the final two romance options of Dragon Age: Inquisition any more special than the six that have already been announced. They aren’t any more or less important than any of the other relationship storylines. The only reason they haven’t been confirmed at this point is simply because Bioware hasn’t gotten around to it yet. Gamers were informed that the developer is “very aware” of fans’ interest in the subject and more details would be revealed in time.
However, if it were up to the series’ lead writer himself, the possible romances in Dragon Age: Inquisition wouldn’t be announced prior to the title’s release at all. Gaider would prefer that fans were allowed to stumble onto the relationships naturally as the story unfolded rather than prepare for a romance ahead of time. Despite his objection to the public reveals of the game’s love interests, Gaider reassured gamers that they should expect to learn the identity of the other romances soon since the process of announcing each love interest has already started.
Dragon Age: Inquisition’s launch date was recently pushed back to Nov. 18. The third installment of Bioware’s fantasy series will be available on the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
