BioWare wants you to know that it's still working on Dragon Age 4. Over on Twitter, BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah decided to give players a new update on the upcoming RPG. And that update was largely letting fans know that the game was still coming.
Darrah's statement was short and straightforward:
"I realize that most of you are here for Dragon Age news and there hasn't been a lot of that lately. Let me just run down some things I [can] say:
- We are working on the next Dragon Age
- Yes we are working from home
- Working from home is harder
- We are making progress"
Fans were excited to hear any news about Dragon Age 4, which is weird because EA confirmed that Dragon Age 4 was still in development just a month ago. A Dragon Age 4 teaser appeared during EA Play Live 2020. Sure, the teaser didn't show anything, but it was clearly planting BioWare's stake in the ground.
Dragon Age 4 is BioWare's next big thing, in development at BioWare Edmonton. A small team at BioWare Austin is working on rebooting Anthem as the rest of that studio is likely helping with Dragon Age 4 and continues to update Star Wars: The Old Republic, which recently came to Steam.
The thing is, Electronic Arts has already admitted that Dragon Age is a long ways off. EA CFO Blake Jorgensen previously said that the game probably wouldn't come until after fiscal 2022, which is April 2022 at least. In the meantime, I guess there are new RPGs like Baldur's Gate 3 or the recently-announced Avowed on the horizon?
