1UP is reporting that inside copies of the Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening expansion, which hits store shelves next week, there is a printed confirmation of the exact release date for a sequel. That release date is February 1, 2011. That day does indeed fall on a Tuesday, the typical game release day for North America. Why announce it so early? To build up hype? I don’t think the franchise needs hype built up this early, if you ask me. The first game should speak for itself. But hey, if EA and Bioware are confident enough that they’ll have a nice, polished game done in just under a year from now, I’m all for it and I definitely look forward to it.
