BioWare Producer Reassures Fans That Yes, Dragon Age 4 Is Still in Development

It was at EA Play Live 2020. Did fans forget about that or something?

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:

  1. We are working on the next Dragon Age
  2. Yes we are working from home
  3. Working from home is harder
  4. 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?
