Fans of the fantasy RPG series Dragon Age have been waiting patiently for news regarding the future of the series since its last entry in the series, Dragon Age Inquisition, launched in 2014; but it seems that drought has neared its end.
In a post via the company’s official blog, BioWare’s Casey Hudson teased that new information regarding the what’s next for the series will be popping up in December. “If you’ve been following these blows, or myself and Mark Darrah on Twitter, you know we’re also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff” the long time BioWare developer stated. “Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy. Look for more in this in the coming month (though I won’t tell you where to look…)”.
Coincidentally, December is the month that happens to hold one of the biggest gaming events of the year, the Game Awards. In recent years, the show has began involving an increasing number of game announcements and surprises, which has cemented it as one of the highlights of the gaming year for both fans and industry members alike. With the event’s viewer base annually increasing, releasing new information at the annual show may look to be one of the likeliest guesses on where to expect BioWare to speak. It was also announced that new footage for BioWare’s upcoming game Anthem will be shown at the event as well.
In 2014, Dragon Age: Inquisition took home the coveted Game of the Year award at thhe Game Awards, along with several other accolades throughout the year’s award season. BioWare continues to look to regain parts of their longtime fan base, which suffered a hit due to the poor reception surrounding Mass Effect: Andromeda in 2017. The company has also stated its continued commitment to the Mass Effect IP as well recently.
BioWare’s next project, Anthem, is scheduled to release in February 2019.
