That's why we haven't seen anything of it - BioWare has pushed Dragon Age 3 back a year from autumn 2013 to autumn 2014.
Intriguingly, this isn't to make it an exclusively next-gen game - it will still be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, BioWare's Christ Priestly confirmed on Twitter.
BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn said: "We're taking the time to craft a deep, captivating experience for you."
He also said things like "vast open world" and "player choice", but the real buzz came from the game's first trailer which, excitingly, featured Dragon Age 1's Morrigan at the end. Could we be playing as the Old God this time around?
Varric from Dragon Age 2 was also there, and was that Flemmeth's voice narrating?
Dragon Age 3 will be powered by Frostbite 3 and, if the trailer's anything to go by (please say it is), looks very handsome indeed.
