Let the good times roll. BioWare’s just confirmed a nasty slip for PC RPG Dragon Age, back from the first six months of this year to the “last half of 2009”.

The game will now release simultaneously with planned console versions, the Canadian developer said in a release.

“Dragon Age: Origins is shaping up to be quite amazing in its level of quality and polish,” said BioWare boss Ray Muzyka.

“I’m really proud of our team, who are working very hard to make Dragon Age: Origins the biggest and most exciting BioWare game yet, and we will work to ensure it not only meets, but exceeds the expectations of our loyal audience of fans.”

The news comes on the back of the announcement of heavy EA losses for the Christmas quarter and the loss of 1,100 jobs at the firm.
