Dragon Age 2 DLC Development Canceled; Work Shifts to Series’ Future
Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah stated to the forums via proxy:
While we will still be keeping an eye out for any issues that might crop up in DA2 and supporting the community should any emergencies should arise, we’re moving the entire team’s focus to the next phase of Dragon Age’s future.
Darrah clarified on Twitter:
TL;DR Version: We’re done development on Dragon Age II, and the team has fully moved onto The Next Thing(tm).

He went on to explain that a major DA2 project, titled Exalted March, was canceled:
We did have plans for an expansion pack to DA2 but, other DA opportunities came up.There were even shirts!It was called Exalted March.

Perhaps we’ll yet see Exalted March in the next DA title.
While I understand DA2 polarized the DA fan base and received harsh criticism, I enjoyed the game, and am sad to see it die this way. What does the future have in store for the series? Is “the next phase of Dragon Age’s future” Dragon Age 3, or will it be (dare I say it?) a Dragon Age MMO?
Are you excited for the future of Dragon Age, or did DA2 spurn you off the series entirely?
