Dragon Age: Origins coming to consoles

BioWare clears up any confusion.

BioWare has told Eurogamer that Dragon Age: Origins will definitely be heading to consoles, following a bit of confusion about the whole thing.

"Yes. Dragon Age: Origins will be coming to consoles in the near future, yes," Dan Tudge, director and executive producer for the game, told Eurogamer.

Tudge hinted that console versions of Origins will arrive in late 2009, after the PC release - which BioWare is confident will be early next year.

When pushed on dates and details, a BioWare PR stepped in to say "plans for consoles haven't been finalised yet".

Dragon Age will also definitely be a series, as you may have guessed.

"'Dragon Age: Origins' really represents three real key elements," said Tudge. "One is obviously the origins stories. The other is the return to BioWare's roots. And the other one is the origins of the franchise, of the series.

"We've built the universe from the ground-up to be something we can base a lot of entertainment product in, and Dragon Age: Origins is really just the beginning."

Dragon Age: Origins is a dark fantasy role-playing game self-described as a spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate.
