According to a report filed by today, the Bioware’s Dr. Ray Muzyka said today that the next Dragon Age title will draw from the successes of other games in the genre, including Skyrim.

Muzyka mostly took the opportunity to reassure fans that Bioware understands a lot of the gripes the fans had with Dragon Age 2, and that Bioware is working to correct a lot of those problems.

“[The next Dragon Age] is gonna have the best of features from the prior Dragon Age games, but it’s also gonna have a lot of things I think players are gonna find compelling from some of the games that are out now that are doing really well with more of an open world feel,” Muzyka told Wired in New York City today.

“We’re checking [Skyrim] out aggressively. We like it. We’re big admirers of [Bethesda] and the product. We think we can do some wonderful things.”

Muzyka also teased fans with an extremely vague hint about what may be to come in the Dragon Age series. “Our goal is to surprise and delight our fans,” Muzyka said. “I’ve seen something in the last couple of weeks that is really the future of that franchise that is so compelling, I am so looking forward to being able to announce it.”
