BioWare’s David Gaider Discusses Cancelled Dragon Age 2 Expansion

A couple of days ago during a Q&A session at GX Australia, BioWare’s former Lead Write David Gaider shed some light on and discussed a cancelled Dragon Age 2 expansion.

The said Dragon Age 2 expansion which was never realized in order to grant more development time to Dragon Age: Inquisition would have carried Hawke’s storyline forward and ended with Varric’s tragic demise; as reported by Press-Start.

Continuing, Gaider also confirmed that a small amount of content from the said expansion was reworked into Dragon Age: Inquisition, but a large chunk of it had to be cut due to its primary focus on Hawke.

Lastly, the former Lead Write stated that the original plans for Dragon Age: Inquisition saw the game twice as big in size as compared to what was released back in 2014. While we do not know pretty much anything about another Dragon Age game, BioWare is currently working to release the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Having worked on Dragon Age, Baldur’s, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and a couple of companion comic series, David Gaider confirmed his resignation in January 2016 in the lieu of finding new challenges:

It was indeed my decision. One not made easily since BioWare’s been very good to me, and the parting is amicable. It’s simply time to move onto a new challenge. As to where I’m headed next, that announcement will come in due time – today’s about saying goodbye and packing up.
