Dragon Age 4 release date, story and more!
It’s official, a new Dragon Age game is coming, and regardless of whether it’s officially called Dragon Age 4 or something else entirely.
Since BioWare have yet to officially announce the game we don’t have a Dragon Age 4 release date yet. However, we do know that the game is being worked on by staff at BioWare. Writing for the game was taking place in May 2017, and at the time development was considered to be in ‘early stages’.
Dragon Age: Inquisition began development around early 2011, and released November 2014. If BioWare are planning on a three-year development period again, that would place Dragon Age 4 in a late 2019 release window.
Word from sources within BioWare suggested that the game would be “live”, leading to concerns from players about Dragon Age becoming a Destiny-like multiplayer game. BioWare’s general manager Casey Hudson tweeted about these fears, emphasising that the live elements would be focused on continuing the story after the main narrative is over.
Reading lots of feedback regarding Dragon Age, and I think you’ll be relieved to see what the team is working on. Story & character focused.
Too early to talk details, but when we talk about “live” it just means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story.

While no concrete details of Dragon Age 4’s story have been revealed, we do know that Alexis Kennedy, founder of Failbetter Games, has been involved in the game’s writing. In May 2017 he revealed that we was working for BioWare on a chunk of story and lore. His plotline is said to be separate from the core story, but more substantial than background lore drops. In short: expect characters with dialogue and backstory.
It’s worth noting that the new game will most likely not be called Dragon Age 4 – it might be the fourth game in the franchise, but as Inquisition and Mass Effect: Andromeda show, a strictly numerical system doesn’t tend to be BioWare’s style. Given the timing of Darrah’s tweet, it’s possible that we could get our first look at the game at this summer’s E3.
