Dragon Age 4

BioWare provided an update on the next Dragon Age, currently referred to as Dragon Age 4. Studio general manager Gary McKay confirmed that the team is “right in the middle of production.” “Our blueprint was completed last year, so we’re now focused on building out our vision: creating amazing environments, deep characters, strong gameplay, impactful writing, emotional cinematics – and much more. The blueprint for the game is well understood and the team is focused.”

More details and news from the team will be shared later this year with blogs and social content. There will also be “regular communication” with community council players. “As passionate fans like you, we take their feedback seriously. We are also listening to all of you as you share your thoughts and experiences, so keep talking to us!”

As for the next Mass Effect, McKay revealed that the team is “actively prototyping new ideas and experiences.” “AAA next-gen games take a long time to make – and we know our fans may want them sooner. But our Number One priority needs to be quality, and that simply takes time to get it right.”

McKay’s update lines up fairly well with recent reports with journalist Jeff Grubb noting the role-playing game to be in “very good shape.” The team was reported to be hitting milestones and is on schedule, which is about “18 months” from the day of reporting. As such, Grubb expects a release in late 2023 at the earliest so it’s very much possible that it could slip into early 2024.

Official platforms for the next Dragon Age haven’t been announced but it’s rumored to be skipping previous-gen consoles in favor of current gen. As always, stay tuned for more details and updates in the coming months. We may even see a new trailer at the next EA Play Live this Summer.
