BioWare producer confirms active development of 'Dragon Age 4'

Gamers last experienced the Dragon Age world back in 2014 with the excellent Dragon Age: Inquisition. Since then, fans have been asking for the next entry in the franchise but we haven't received any concrete confirmation that BioWare was past the planning stages.

Luckily, that changed today because Producer Mark Darrah confirmed that the developer was hard at work on Anthem and the next Dragon Age game. Darrah said that he was the Executive Producer for both games and that "there are people hard at work on both franchises". He also added that the next Dragon Age game will focus on continuing the story after the main campaign ends. This seems to indicate that development is currently going strong for the next entry in the Dragon Age franchise. We might just see the title sooner rather than later.

This also appears to be the first time BioWare has confirmed that it is actively working on a new Dragon Age game. Hopefully the title will live up to the expectations and not turn out like Mass Effect: Andromeda. However, only time will tell because we've seen a lot of games crumble recently due to poor quality control.

If you haven't played the Dragon Age series, be sure to check out the games on Xbox One and Xbox 360 backward compatibility. According to BioWare, Dragon Age: Inquisition focuses on a "cataclysmic event which plunges the realm of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons darken the sky, casting a shadow of terror over a peaceful kingdom. Mages break into all-out war against the oppressive Templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you and your party of legendary heroes to restore order as you lead the Inquisition, hunting down the agents of chaos."

  • Killing another franchise...
  • how so? the same people work on 4 and the last one is considered a hit. people like u is what's wrong with the gaming community, nothing but another Armchair Dev.
  • WTF are you talking about? I have heard that all their eggs are in the Anthem basket. This will probably mean that DA will get the same treatment as ME, which was a disgrace. If that's not the case and the same team works on it as Inquisition, then that's awesome news and now its up to EA not to ruin the franchise. People like me are what's wrong with the gaming community? You people one of the people that give a game a fair shot till I play it, enjoy it despite the bugs, and then sadly watch as they kill support for a game they just released (obviously I am talking about Andromeda)? How is that being an armchair developer? I'm not telling anyone how to make a video game, I'm just calling a a**hole publisher out for their past actions. Bioware is just as equally guilty in this regard. Hopefully i am wrong as I did enjoy DA (not as much as ME, but still enjoyed nonetheless), but how can this comment not be made after what just happened?
  • Please take your time and do this right, EA. DA:I has been my favourite game since I got back into gaming with the Xbox One. It also pretty much single-handedly made the case that EA makes good enough games to keep paying for Access (yeah, it's a small fee, but I haven't had much since then which I really loved).
  • just remaster DA Origins
