"I can tell you we're working on more unannounced PS3 projects right now," he revealed.
Comparing the PS3 with the Xbox 360, Dr Muzyka said they both had there strong points.
"The PS3 seems to be favourite among many Dragon Age fans. It represents advantages over 360, and 360 represents advantages over PS3 in some ways," he said.
"They're both good platforms at the end of the day," he added.
Recently, Scott Rudi, a designer at Zipper Interactive - makers of new PS3 game MAG, told VideoGamer.com that he did not think the title could have been made for any other platform because of the superior performance of the PS3.
