BioWare’s Rob Bartel has told MCV Dragon Age has become the most successful series the studio has ever made.

Yes, more so than Mass Effect.

In fact, it has become more popular than Knights of the Old Republic, Baldur’s Gate and Jade Empire.

“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,” Bartel said at  EA’s European showcase back in May.

“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 [Texas].

“So Dragon Age is a very big part of what we do and for what the future for BioWare will hold for sure.”

Bartel’s published comments coincide with BioWare lifting the wraps off Dragon Age 2, with a massive blowout on information as well as first pieces of art.

The first trailer will be shown during EA’s press conference at gamescom on August 17.

No date yet, but it will be coming to PS3, 360, PC and handhelds.

February 2011 sounds like a good guess, mind.
