The Dragon Age franchise has been quiet since 2014’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, but that’s set to change soon. BioWare’s Casey Hudson says that the company is preparing to say more about its plans for the series sometime in December.
“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,” Hudson said on the BioWare blog. “Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy. Look for more on this in the coming month (though I won’t tell you where to look…)”
The reference to the coming month is December, during which the biggest game event is the annual Game Awards. That also happens to house a lot of debuts and announcements alongside the accolades, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see the impending Dragon Age announcement show up there. Inquisition won the top honor of Game of the Year at 2014’s Game Awards.
Hudson has previously acknowledged a new Dragon Age in development, responding to concerns about EA’s push for live content. In August he teased secret projects in the works across their franchises. BioWare has also made clear that it’s still pursuing the future of Mass Effect too.
Currently, BioWare’s next major release is Anthem, which is coming in February 2019. It will be accompanied by a demo.
Dragon Age was one of two major franchises that BioWare was alternating between in the last generation, the other being Mass Effect. Mass Effect made the journey to the new generation of consoles with Mass Effect: Andromeda, but Dragon Age has not had a new game created exclusively for this generation.
