BioWare has confirmed that it’s still working on Dragon Age 4, although development has been complicated by this year’s switch to remote working.
In June EA offered the first look at some of its in-development projects for next-gen consoles. A work-in-progress video was used to tease new fantasy worlds from BioWare, Battlefield 6, and Criterion’s next-gen Need for Speed.
“You should assume that Dragon Age—it’s out there, we’ve talked about it publicly that it’s in the works—it probably comes after fiscal 22,” EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said.
“But we typically don’t give multi-year guidance this early in the year, or multi-year guidance period,” he added, “so I don’t want to start giving [fiscal] 23 guidance now that I’ve started to hint on 22, but you should assume it’s out there and plans are underway for that product.”
In early 2018, it was reported that BioWare had rebooted Dragon Age 4 and that its replacement would be a “live service” game.
“Story & character focused. Too early to talk details, but when we talk about ‘live’ it just means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story.”
EA officially teased the game with a vague trailer at The Game Awards in December 2018. In an accompanying blog post, BioWare said: “We’ve gathered our strongest team yet and are venturing forth on the most epic quest ever.”
