The next mainline Dragon Age game will receive an update next week.
Geoff Keighley has announced over on Twitter that Dragon Age 4 will be receiving “a special look” at The Game Awards next Thursday, on December 10. BioWare and EA first announced the next mainline game in the series at The Game Awards in 2018 with a teaser trailer.
Updates on the RPG have been scant since its reveal. BioWare assured in July earlier this year that production on the game was proceeding smoothly, while early development footage and some new details were also revealed the following month.
Reports have also suggested that the game is being built on Anthem’s codebase. Allegedly, while the critical path in the RPG will be single player-focused, BioWare have not yet decided what to do with the multiplayer component.
Recently, Dragon Age 4 executive producer Mark Darrah left BioWare (alongside general manager Casey Hudson). In his absence, the development will now be led by BioWare Austin studio head Christian Dailey, while Matthew Goldman will stay on as creative director.
As for when Dragon Age 4 (or whatever BioWare ends up calling it) will come out, no launch window has been announced- but it’s not going to be anytime soon. EA has said not to expect the game anytime before April 1, 2022.
