BioWare Teases Dragon Age-Related News for Next Month

BioWare Teases Dragon Age-Related News for Next Month

A Game Awards reveal, perhaps?

The Game Awards commence next week on December 6. God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 lead the nominations, but everyone watching will be tuned in likely for another reason: all the trailers. Host and producer Geoff Keighley has promised lots of world premieres and new game announcements for the award show.

Developers BioWare, who will already be at the show with a new look at the upcoming Destiny-like multiplayer game Anthem, teased in a blog today that perhaps we'll be getting a peek at whatever the next Dragon Age game is too. While BioWare general manager Casey Hudson is coy in the blog about whether it will actually be at The Game Awards, the indication from the following is undeniable: "Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy. Look for more on this in the coming month (though I won’t tell you where to look…)."

Meanwhile, Obsidian will be revealing its new sci-fi RPG at The Game Awards, according to a countdown, some teaser images, and a tweet from Keighley himself confirming that it's a RPG. Fans think we could be due for a Metroid Prime 4 trailer, judging from… a shirt that Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wore in a picture with Keighley. (I kid you not.)

At last year's The Game Awards, we saw reveals for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (then just a very short teaser with no name), Soulcalibur 6, In the Valley of Gods, Bayonetta 3, and more. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took home the night's biggest trophy too. As the possibility of a Dragon Age reveal seems very likely now, you can tune in as The Game Awards roll out live on Thursday, December 6 at 5:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. ET, streaming on Twitch and many other sites.
