    Well, as the title says, Bioware and Electronic Arts have announced Dragon Age II to be released in March 2011. Again, it will be released on the PC, PS3, and XBox 360. There's not a lot of info yet, but it's good to know we'll be getting it rather quickly. :D Here's the link to the article: http://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q3-2010/070810d.html

    EDIT: I just checked out the official site and it looks like the article I posted might be wrong about when the trailer will be released. According to the official site, the debut trailer will be on August 17.

    Awesome, I figured that was the big secret announcement Bioware would make today. Still need to play the first one on PC. PC versions are almost always the best ones these days, often with full Xbox 360 controller support. No need for a console almost. :D

    Well there isn't really info on that sort of thing right now, but I really hope it isn't. The series is still pretty young and in my opinion it would be a horrible idea to do an MMORPG until the series is better established.

    Sweet, know their would be but still. I hope they release the full game this time as it seemed that some of the DLC's should of been in the game in self in the 1st place.

    Hoping it's kind of set in the past, before the Dwarfs were crushed, and maybe more of the Qunari.

    Only one race, male or female.

    Hum.. Dragon Age 2 is more mass-effect-ish?

    I was honestly hoping for continuing the Origin's storyline, even if it was about (spoiler)following Morrigan's son which has the powers of an archdemon (spoiler).

    Even if it's not the same as DA:O, I thinks it's going to be a very good game.
    Bioware doesn't usually release crap.

    Edit : Hey one more post and I'll be eligible for a custome title :rockout: ... oh wait. :/

    Hmmmm, maybe it's a relative of Duncan. Actually if we played as Duncan that would be pretty cool.

    When I read that Hawke was supposed to be one of the most powerful people in the world of Dragon Age, I had to wonder if
    he might actually be one of the old gods reborn after killing the archdemon.
    It's a long shot but who knows. Besides that was only one choice so it would ultimately depend on if they decided to base a story on that particular ending.

    Well, they'll have to choose one canonic ending, eventually.

    Bit of an update, it is known that Flemeth will appear in this game, and that Mages will be more flexible in battle.

    Some more concept art:
