Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitello has said that PC owners can expect to see BioWare's fantasy RPG Dragon Age in this fiscal year's fourth quarter.
For those unaware, this fiscal year ends next April, so you'll be able to get your grubby hands on the title sometime between January and March, 2009.
According to GameSpot, Riccitello broke the news at the William Blair & Company Growth Stock Conference in Chicago.
When asked which of EA's new IPs would be among its top 10 best-sellers in 2008, he listed a number of titles, before adding:
"[Saboteur and Dragon Age] won't make the calendar year because they're coming in fiscal Q4." EA's fiscal year ends on March 31, 2009, which means that both games will now arrive in the first three months of next year."
EA's UK office was unable to confirm that the title will get a global launch, but we're sure that the days of having to wait for such a high-profile title on PC are behind us. Or rather, hoping they are.
Dragon Age is set in an entirely new setting created from some of the minds behind Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. They've been working away at it for five years.
From the sounds of it though, the time has been well spent. You can read our prerview here.
