It’s a busy year for Electronic Arts especially following the Battlefield 2042 debacle and upcoming titles like the next Need for Speed and the rumored Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2. The former is reportedly out in September/October this year while the latter is coming in Q4 2022. But what about BioWare’s Dragon Age 4?
First announced at The Game Awards 2018, it’s had several trailers but no real gameplay or even an official name. According to insider Tom Henderson on Twitter, who spoke to a “source with knowledge of EA’s plans”, “There’s ‘no chance’ that Dragon Age 4 will release in 2022.” EA has previously said it doesn’t expect to release it before fiscal year 2023, which begins on April 1st 2022.
But this seemingly means it could be delayed to fiscal year 2024, if not releasing before March 31st 2023. Both would fit with the rumored 2023 release that journalist Jeff Grubb said it’s on track for. Time will tell but either way, don’t hold your breath. BioWare has noted that the development team was hard at work and “excited for next year” so we could receive some new details in the coming months.
