I've never heard of a 5 year cycle being normal. In fact, quite the opposite — I've heard developers state that if a development cycle took 5 years, that would be a game that wouldn't get made. In addition, Dragon Age was supposed to be out in 2007 (at least originally). So a 08/09 release is not on target. Maybe it's on "revised target."
