Alistair, the first full companion in the original Dragon Age: Origins as well as the heir to Ferelden’s throne, likely won’t be making an appearance in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The popular warrior has appeared in the game’s expansion pack Awakening, the Darkspawn Chronicles DLC, Dragon Age 2, and the Silent Grove comic series, but voice actor Steve Valentine has confirmed through Twitter that he hasn’t been asked to participate in the new game.
With this new RPG by Bioware expected to ship by the end of the year, one would assume that if Alistair’s role was being reprised, the Voice Actor would have been contacted by now.
Fans probably shouldn’t get their hopes up, but they can be excited about the new information coming this week.
Aaryn Flynn, general manager for BioWare’s Edmonton and Montreal studios, teased an announcement recently over his social media, so there’s at least some hope for exciting news looming just around the corner.
