BioWare’s Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk revealed to UGO at GDC that due to the universe, lore, and narrative in Dragon Age, there are “infinite” possibilities for expansions and DLC.

Speaking with Tracy John, the doctors explained how the development team is exploring things that will be “fun and different” for fans.

“We have some cool stuff for both [ME and DAO] that we’re exploring that’ll be fun and different for the fans, and yet in a familiar setting at the same time,” said Muzyka.

“Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect are franchises so they have different strategies and different kinds of story arcs but we plan on continuing to make games and worlds and expanding on those worlds in both franchises.

“Both in different ways, but we want to continue to provide content to fans, whether that be separate games or new adventures that have very different kinds of gameplay. So we have some cool stuff for both of them that we’re exploring that’ll be fun and different for the fans, and yet in a familiar setting at the same time”.

“In the case of Dragon Age, it’s exciting because there’s this whole timeline and geography,” added Zeschuk. “So with Mass Effect, we’re constantly thinking about the trilogy. But with Dragon Age, it’s more open and you can put more all over the place. Seventeen… Sixty-six? Infinite! Infinite games for the Dragon Age universe!”

Awakening hit Xbox Live this week, and the doctors told us at GDC that more DLC was on the way for it as well as Mass Effect 2.
