Production budgets for modern AAA games range from around 40-60 million to as high as 100-200 million for some of the most high profile projects like GTA IV, Skyrim, TOR, etc. Then the marketing cost can be many millions more on top of that, but I assume InExile intends to partner with a publisher that would cover the marketing cost.

No idea about DA:O, Risen or Divinity 2. The budget for the original Fallout was $3 million, but that was so long ago that you would need to take inflation into account
