The tale of dragons shall go beyond Origins?

In a discussion on BioWare’s official forums, one of the writers at the company, Patrick Weekes, has all but announced a sequel to the just-around-the-corner Dragon Age: Origins.

In response to a discussion starter who wondered what the writers at the company are doing at the stage in a game’s development when the story elements are seemingly finalized, Weekes said, “Many writers are on different projects now, like Dragon Age 2 or the MMO.” The MMO is probably Star Wars:The Old Republic, but “Dragon Age 2” couldn’t be clearer. “We did kinda call the first one “Origins“,” he later added.

Some writers have also moved on to downloadable content according to Weekes, although “that is all [he] can say about that.”
