Dragon Age 4, the fourth installment of BioWare’s critically acclaimed fantasy role-playing franchise, will not be launching this year.
That’s according to Battlefield leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson, who, according to a recent tweet, was told by a source that there is zero chance of Dragon Age 4 releasing in 2022. Henderson’s claim has since been corroborated by games journalist Jeff Grubb, who shared an article on VentureBeat explaining that Dragon Age fans could be waiting a year or more for the long-awaited title to drop.

“BioWare’s fantasy role-playing franchise is still a long way from its return,” Grubb confirmed. “Dragon Age 4 is still in the works, but don’t expect to see it for at least a full year from now at the earliest.”
“This is still in line with what I wrote in July about the game launching in 2023. But don’t take that to mean early 2023. A summer release is the earliest possible timeframe for the launch of Dragon Age 4, and even that is a vague hope more than a real target.”
Relatively little has been shared regarding Dragon Age 4 since the game’s announcement at The Game Awards in December 2018, but Gary McKay, BioWare’s new Studio General Manager, confirmed that the developer was hard at work on the game in a recent blog post, noting the “incredible work from both teams.”
