In an interview with GameSpot, Bioware founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk talked about their company's newest project as well as their plans for the next generation of hardware in general.
The original PC-based RPG title Dragon Age is in fact planned to span multiple games. Concept-wise, they described Dragon Age as a combination of Neverwinter Nights' online multiplayer and content creation features and Baldur's Gate's single-player story arc. While the first game in the series is currently only planned for a PC release, Bioware might bring it to next generation consoles at a later date.
The duo also confirmed their company was working on two titles for Microsoft's Xbox 360. While no details about these games are known at present, they will not be launch titles, but rather go on sale in 2006.
Muzkya and Zeschuk however also emphasized that future will appear on more than two platforms. In fact, they were looking at all next generation consoles and PlayStation Portable, and found them all equally impressive. Furthermore, the two mentioned they were huge handheld fans and particularly enjoyed playing Lumines on PlayStation Portable. Zeschuk said new handheld platforms like PlayStation Portable would be capable of handling Bioware RPGs. Another option the company might pursue is only gaming, specifically the MMO genre. According to Zechuk, Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft has showed them that creating a MMO title was achiveable.
