There are 10 new games set to be unveiled at The Game Awards 2018, and the latest batch of rumors hints that one of them will be a new Dragon Age game.
Rumors started when a November BioWare post teased a new game. While the post was vague, it mentioned that BioWare was “excited to continue [the series’] legacy” and was working on some “secret” stuff. It also told fans to look for more news in December. While we’ll have to wait for The Game Awards to find out more information for sure, VentureBeat claims to have a bit more insider info.
According to sources familiar with the studio, as reported by VentureBeat, the next Dragon Age game is still at least three years away. Reports say that the game has been in limbo for over a year at EA, with Anthem taking precedence. EA’s shift to providing games as a service also caused friction, causing Dragon Age writer Mike Laidlaw to leave the studio. However, the passion of other developers may still keep Dragon Age 4—or whatever it’s called, as the game doesn’t yet have a name—on track.
While it’s hard to verify these rumors, Eurogamer also “understands [this report] to be true.” It seems that work on the game has been rebooted, and may start anew after Anthem‘s early 2019 launch.
Whatever the case is, we’ll find out tomorrow, December 6th, when The Game Awards officially a new batch of games. So far, we’re looking forward to a special announcement about Fortnite, what looks to be a Crash Team Racing remaster, news of the next RPG from Fallout: New Vegas creators Obsidian Entertainment, and “something special” from Nintendo. Be sure to check back for updates on all the latest news.
