It's far from conclusive evidence, but a recent survey document relating to Dragon Age: Inquisition reportedly intended for public game testers in the Vancouver area has a couple of questions that suggest developer BioWare has been seriously considering some manner of multiplayer in its forthcoming fantasy RPG. (thanks Gamespot):

"Mass Effect Multiplayer" is included among the titles survey respondents are asked whether they have had any experience with, and another question specifically asks "If you played Mass Effect 3, please tell us about your experience with the multiplayer aspect of the game".

When probing what elements players find most and least important in a game, "I can play cooperatively with other people online" is listed as an option among features like combat pacing, deep storytelling and freedom of exploration.

Neither Dragon Age Origins or Dragon Age 2 featured any kind of multiplayer, however, no did the first two Mass Effect games, and the multiplayer mode that BioWare controversially included in its sci-fi epic proved to be surprisingly robust and popular.

Gamespot points out that in the studio's last official comment on the matter, BioWare's Cameron Lee had stated that they "haven't decided on anything in terms of multiplayer at this point.", but mentioned "The Mass Effect multiplayer stuff was really good, so we've certainly looked at options like that".

What do we all think? Could a Dragon Age game benefit from multiplayer? Competitive or Co-op? Or should BioWare just leave it alone and knuckle down on the single-player RPG?

Dragon Age: Inquisition is due on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in late 2014.
