Believe it or not, the Dragon Age series turned 10 years old over the weekend.

The first game, Dragon Age: Origins was released way back in 2009, and in the ten years since then, we’ve added another two titles to the franchise: 2011’s Dragon Age 2 and 2014’s Dragon Age: Inquisition.

It may not be long before we know more about the next installment in the franchise, as BioWare may finally be gearing up to officially unveil Dragon Age 4.

The fourth installment of the Dragon Age franchise was confirmed in a teaser trailer at last year’s Game Awards, but in the time since then, BioWare has gone mostly quiet about the game.

Its silence on the matter is understandable given its focus on supporting Anthem post-launch, but according to a new tweet from the company, we may learn more about the game next month.

Today marks 10 years of Dragon Age!

It’s almost two years since BioWare announced that Dragon Age 4 is in the making.

In the previous month, there was a screenshot on the internet that showed a dark atmosphere.

According to the image, players are guessing it would play a major role in the upcoming game.BioWare also revealed that Dragon Age 4 is in development for PlayStation 5.

Indeed this makes the fans more excited and sad at the same time because some fans wanted it in PlayStation 4 as well.

Although fans also assume that it will release in 2021, still the real question exists, when will Dragon Age 4 arrive?When will Dragon Age 4 Arrive?The only assumption right now is Dragon Age 4 going to arrive in 2021.

However, it seems that the game might be released on PlayStation 5.

It’s common knowledge that most people found BioWare’s recent Mass Effect: Andromeda to be a disappointment.

There was an understandably huge amount of hype leading up to its release, but a variety of factors, including its many bugs, meant the game didn’t come close to matching the original trilogy.

It seems that BioWare will be looking to restore fans’ faith with another new title that’s also part of a long-running series: Dragon Age.

Speaking on The 1099 podcast, creative director of the fantasy RPG franchise, Mike Laidlaw, admitted that “it’s no secret we’re doing something with Dragon Age.”

It’s likely that Laidlaw is talking about a sequel to the last entry in the series, 2014’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, which makes sense considering the game’s post-credits scene between Solas and Flemeth that left so many unanswered questions.

Laidlaw didn’t reveal anything else about the upcoming title, though he did say the Dragon Age team was “hiring a lot of people.” He also mentioned that BioWare was working on some “other things” that he couldn’t divulge.

The Dragon Age series has taken a few years off since the release of the excellent Dragon Age: Inquisition, but BioWare and Electronic Arts haven’t forgotten about the swords-and-sorcery role-playing series, and a new game is in the works.

BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah confirmed work is underway on a new Dragon Age game via Twitter, adding that he is currently working on both that game and the online action-adventure Anthem, which was first shown during EA Play last summer.

It’s unclear who else is involved in the fourth Dragon Age game’s production.

Inquisition‘s creative director Mike Laidlaw left BioWare in October, after also working on the Mass Effect series as well as the cult classic Jade Empire.

Back in September, Laidlaw said Dragon Age 4 was “not confirmed,” so it’s possible BioWare has something else in mind for the next game, rather than a simple sequel.

Inquisition took the franchise into a more open-ended structure, with several enormous environments for players to explore and a story that tied back to previous games in the series.

It’s been just over three years since the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition so it’s natural that fans are getting somewhat inquisitive (sorry) with regards to the release of the next game in the franchise.

Thanks to executive producer Mark Darrah, we now have a confirmation that there is indeed another Dragon Age game in development.

It’s hard, then, to say how far along the game’s development might be and how close we might be to seeing it released.

However, with a recent report from Kotaku suggesting that some of the Dragon Age development team has been pulled off the title to focus on creating Anthem, we think it’s likely to be a while before we hear anything concrete about Dragon Age 4’s release date.

The most recent non-official confirmation has come from executive producer Mark Darrah, who tweeted in January 2018 that he’s working on both Dragon Age as well as BioWare’s next big IP, Anthem.

With Anthem disappointing, all eyes are on developer BioWare's return to the Dragon Age universe to see if the veteran RPG maker still has what it takes to craft an engrossing adventure.

A new short story collection may be about to tease where we're headed for Dragon Age 4.

Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights is a new set of tales by a handful of BioWare authors, edited by Dragon Age's current lead writer, Patrick Weekes.

He took to Twitter to clarify his position as editor of the new collection, and to give a shout out to those involved:

Hey, all: this isn’t accurate.

It is NOT a novel by me.It IS an anthology of short stories set in the Dragon Age universe, featuring @eplerjc, @bbattye, @CourtneyWoods, @Sylvf1, @el_cormier, and many others!

A bunch of new games were unveiled on Thursday night during the annual video game industry awards show, The Game Awards.

Some of the biggest games unveiled were from major franchises: "Mortal Kombat 11" and "Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled" are among the most recognizable.

EA's long-rumored new "Dragon Age" game was teased, and a new game from the team behind "No Man's Sky" was revealed as a much smaller, more quiet affair.

This year's event, which happened on Thursday night, was no exception: A brand new "Mortal Kombat" game was finally unveiled, and a long-awaited new entry in the "Dragon Age" series was teased by EA's BioWare studio.

EA's BioWare division is responsible for major franchises like "Mass Effect," the upcoming "Anthem," and — most importantly in this case — "Dragon Age."

It is, however, the first real confirmation of the game's existence from EA, and that's great news for "Dragon Age" fans.

It's now been more than three years since the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition and although we're still squeezing fun out of the game, we think it’s pretty understandable that fans are getting somewhat inquisitive (sorry) with regards to when we'll hear about the next game in the franchise.

Even though we all knew, on some level, that there would definitely be another Dragon Age game, it was nice to have a confirmation from executive producer Mark Darrah.

According to Laidlaw, when it was released, The Witcher 3 highlighted weaknesses in Inquisition and made him feel that his games was "a little hollow".

It’s hard, then, to say how far along the game’s development might be, and how close we might be to seeing it released.

The next Dragon Age game will no longer have multiplayer aspects, according to a new Bloomberg report. The game, made by EA-owned studio BioWare, had reportedly “been designed with a heavy multiplayer component,” but it has been turned into a single-player game “in recent months.”

However, we still haven’t seen much of the game since it was first announced with a brief teaser trailer in December 2018, and we don’t know what the multiplayer component could have looked like. Even though the game has been in the works for some time — development started in 2015, reports Bloomberg — there’s still no release date for it just yet, meaning it could be a ways off, and things could change. BioWare recently showed fleeting glimpses of the game in...

Many Dragon Age fans are doubtless very much looking forward to the next instalment of the franchise, but maybe their enthusiasm will be dampened given the latest from the gaming grapevine, which seems to indicate that EA has switched course to model the RPG more along the lines of Anthem.

This comes from Kotaku, in an interview concerning Bioware’s slow progress with Dragon Age 4 – it has, after all, been four and a half years since Dragon Age: Inquisition came out, and DA4 still languishes in early development.

All we’ve seen regarding the next game is a very brief trailer which popped up last year, along with news that the title is likely to be a good couple of years away from fruition (at least).

Kotaku’s digging unearthed what many will likely find a somewhat disturbing picture of Dragon Age 4, in that apparently the original concept for the game has been abandoned in favor of a more monetization-centric Anthem approach.

In other words, it’s more games-as-a-service, although not with a subscription, but rather with a steady drip of additional content and micro-transactions.

That sounds very different to the previous vision the development team was reportedly working with, which saw Dragon Age 4 as a smaller game than the previous Inquisition outing, allowing it to focus more on being ‘hugely reactive’ to your actions, with there being choices and consequences aplenty.

Earlier this morning, from out of nowhere, BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah took to social media to claim that he is overseeing work on the next Dragon Age while simultaneously working on the studio’s upcoming online persistent shooter, Anthem.

Darrah said that BioWare has “people hard at work on both franchises,” but this doesn’t mean a new Dragon Age is coming anytime soon.

EA wants BioWare focused almost exclusively on Anthem before shifting significant resources back to Dragon Age, according to our own source familiar with the publisher.

p Bioware's next game may still be a long way off from release, but at least it doesn't plan to release it before it's ready.

Bioware’s next game isn’t set to arrive until some point in “fiscal year 2019,” which means the earliest it will debut is April next year.

That does give the Dragon Age developer a lot of wiggle room though, as the slated time stretches all the way until March 2019.

Even though Bioware only just released Mass Effect Andromeda in March 2017, during an earnings call earlier this year, an executive at Bioware’s parent company, EA, revealed that a new game was in the works and planned for an early-2018 release.

However, just a few months on and that launch date has been pushed back by as much as a year.

“We’re very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare,” EA CEO, Andrew Wilson said during an earnings call (via Polygon).

Sure, the studio continues to focus on Anthem.

That cooperative online sci-fi shooter is due out February 22, and it has an alpha test starting this week, December 8.

But Hudson wants to make sure you know that his team hasn’t forgotten about its roots — even if it may take until 2021 for you to return to them.

That led Hudson to post the following on the official BioWare blog, which he writes himself:

“If you’ve been following these blogs, or myself and Mark Darrah on Twitter, you know we’re also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff.

Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy.
