Origins invites EA to work on an improved version
With a slew of classic remakes recently, David Gaider, the lead writer of the first Dragon Age games, wants a remaster of 2009’s Dragon Age: Origins.
Gaider was the lead writer and setmaster for Dragon Age: Origins, and continued his work on both Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition. “If we’re in the era of remakes from scratch, what about Dragon Age Origins? Its graphics were ahead of its time at the time of release…can you imagine it being in the PS5 era?” Gaider wrote on Twitter.
If we’re on a kick re-mastering games from the aughts, what about Dragon Age Origins? Its graphics were behind the curve even at the time of release… can you imagine it with brand new PS5-era bells and whistles? ?

In response to some other Twitter users, Gaider downplayed the prospect of working on an enhanced version of the game, saying “I suspect EA will only do this if they think it will sell like a brownie. They never understood the nature of the title or why it sold better than Mass Effect. It was This is my impression of the company.”
Released in 2009, Dragon Age: Origins was one of the best RPGs of the era, and laid the foundation for future sequels.
