BioWare has rubber stamped development of Dragon Age III.

The role-playing specialists are looking for staff to work on the game.

"I'm looking for exceptional environment artists to join me at #BioWare Edmonton, Canada to work on #DragonAge3 #gamejobs #jobs #3D #artists" reads a tweet by Alistair McNally, senior director of creative development at BioWare (spotted by IGN).

Confirmation of the game comes as no surprise – the Dragon Age series is hugely successful.

Dragon Age II topped the UK all-formats chart upon its March 2011 release.

Eurogamer's Dragon Age II review rolled an 8/10. "An enduring classic? Not quite," wrote Dan Whitehead. "A satisfying epic? Absolutely."

But the game proved devisive. In a Dragon Age II interview with Eurogamer, lead designer Mike Laidlaw said the developer has "ideas" for a sequel and protagonist Hawke.

What about multiplayer?

"Long-term that's something we have to consider," he said, "because obviously multiplayer is something that's a huge undertaking, it presents technical difficulty. And frankly it's something that if done, has to be done really well, otherwise it feels very tacked on. So we'll have to make any decision about that within that context."
