Dragon Age II composer Inon Zur has said the sequel was put out less than 18 months after the release of Origins due to EA wishing to gain quick success on the back of the original.

“Unlike other titles from Bioware, this [score] was kind of a rush job,” Zur told IGN.

“EA really wanted to capitalize on the success of Origins, so the game was really being pushed hard to be released now.”

Origins released back in 2009.

The BioWare RPG sequel has seen decent reviews in the eights and nines, although Edge has given it a six. Meta score right now is at 83 on PS3 and 360, with the PC version at 84.

Having released in the US on Tuesday, the game launches in the UK today.
