Dragon Age: Origins PC Delayed, Accompanying Console Versions to Stores

35
Update: During its call with investors, Electronic Arts CEO John Rictiello said that the delay was due to marketing, but that BioWare will continue to polish the PC release.

Ricitiello further stated that the RPG will arrive in the company's third quarter, which runs from October 1 to December 31.

Original: Once slated to arrive in early 2009, the PC version of BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins will now arrive alongside the console versions in the second half of 2009.

BioWare did not specify if the PC version was being held back until the console editions were completed, or if the PC release simply needed more development time.

"I'm really proud of our team, who are working very hard to make Dragon Age: Origins the biggest and most exciting BioWare game yet, and we will work to ensure it not only meets, but exceeds the expectations of our loyal audience," said CEO Ray Muzyka.

    Man I'm so glad I get to wait simply because the console version people might get butthurt.

      Though I'm well aware there is a marketing component of this as well, which is obviously the driving force.

      Doesn't make me any less grumpy.

      Nah I don't think so. PC people are more likely to get angry since they are worried about their games getting dumbed down and consolized (rightly so since it has happened many times). This isn't really the type of game that the console crowd would get too angry over. After all it is supposed to be similar to the original Baldurs Gate games which were PC RPG's through and through.

      I personally don't really mind

        I really should have incorporated my caveat into my original post, sigh.
