Dragon Age 4 reportedly “on track” to release by 2023
The supposed release date might explain Dragon Age 4’s absence at the recent EA Play Live. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb reports that this is still two years away. According to the same report, the game is “on track” for a 2023 release date.
Additionally, the game was left out of the showcase to “enable the publisher to get the game into position to begin marketing it in earnest.” Currently though, EA has no plans to announce a release window for Dragon Age 4. The game was first announced at The Game Awards 2018 with an enigmatic teaser. Since then, we have learned that the game will be set in Tevinter, one of the game’s most intriguing settings. It will also heavily involve Solas, the mysterious elf companion from Dragon Age: Inquisition.
A Bloomberg report from earlier this year also confirms that BioWare will be scrapping the previously reported multiplayer modes for the game. It will now be sticking to its story-driven single-player roots. The report mentions that this change in direction is due to the flop of multiplayer shooter Anthem. The success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order also helped prove in the potential of single-player games.
Dragon Age 4 will be critical for BioWare. This is due to the studio’s past two launches, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem, both being troubled releases. However, the recently released remaster of the Mass Effect Trilogy has fostered some goodwill for the studio. Alongside this, series fans will also be glad to hear of the game re-focusing into single-player.
