EA Delays Dragon Age: Inquisition to November

It's pushed out a month...
EA has announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition will be released in November, a bit over a month later than originally schedule. The company announced that the game will release on November 18th and not the originally-planned date of October 7th.
"Since we began working on Dragon Age: Inquisition almost four years ago, our goal was to create the best Dragon Age experience ever," said executive producer Mark Darrah. "It was that goal that motivated many of our decisions: moving to Frostbite, bringing race choice and customization back, improving tactical camera, building a team of characters whose relationships evolve based on your actions, and most importantly, crafting an epic, nation-spanning story that both draws upon past games and takes you to many new places in the realm of Thedas."
He added, that "This last bit of time is about polishing the experience we want you to see. Ensuring that our open spaces are as engaging as possible. Strengthening the emotional impact of the Hero's choices. And ensuring the experience you get is the best it can be in the platform you choose to play on."
This may also work to the game's advantage by coming out in a less-crowded month, as October sees several high-profile releases including Lords of the Fallen, WWE 2K15, Assassin's Creed Unity, Evolve, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Alien: Isolation. It also positions it closer to the Holy Grail-esque release window of Black Friday, which can't hurt.
Dragon Age: Inquisition will release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
