BioWare continues to remain tight-lipped on the fourth installment of its treasured Dragon Age franchise, but thanks to industry insiders, fans have been getting some indication as to when the highly anticipated title might finally see the light of day.
The latest comes by way of VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, who reported in a new episode of GrubbSnax that Dragon Age 4’s development has been going well enough for the game to hit its originally planned release frame, which is supposedly 18 months from today. Echoing Grubb, Dragon Age 4 will seemingly, at the earliest, be released in late 2023.
Previous reports had already indicated that Dragon Age 4 wouldn’t be launching this year, which isn’t surprising based on the paltry amount of media that BioWare has shared for the game so far. Dragon Age 4 hasn’t received an honest trailer since its teaser, which debuted during 2020’s Game Awards show.
Jeff Grubb said on the latest episode of GrubbSnax, Dragon Age 4 is in very good shape, they’re hitting their milestones. The game is on schedule, which is about 18 months out from today. He expects it to release maybe late 2023 at the earliest.— Idle Sloth (@IdleSloth84) February 18, 2022
Dragon Age 4 due in next 18 months – report (Eurogamer)
- BioWare’s follow-up to Dragon Age Inquisition has been in some form of development since at least 2017, when an early draft of its story was being written.
- But the game has had several setbacks and reboots as staff changed, and as the vision for the project settled back into its single-player role-playing game roots following the failure of online multiplayer experiment Anthem.
- More recently, BioWare has begun releasing small teasers for the game which have confirmed several familiar faces will return to the franchise for its next instalment. We also know where the game will be set, too.
