Dragon Age 4's most recent rumors about its release date
At this time, there is no set release date for Dragon Age 4. Even though Dragon Age 4 has been in development since 2015, according to a report by Kotaku, the team has been pulled away from the project to work on other BioWare projects, including Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem, and the original Dragon Age 4 project has been shut down as a result of the distractions.
The development of a new Dragon Age 4 project resumed in 2017, and the game's release date is not expected to be announced until at least 2023. On EA's recent earnings call, Blake Jorgensen, its financial director, stated that “you should assume there is a Dragon Age out there, we've talked about it publicly that it's in the works – it will most likely come after fiscal [year] 2022.” Sources familiar with the fantasy role-playing adventure confirm that it will be released in 2023, according to GamesBeat.
Despite the fact that Dragon Age 4 is still a long way off, BioWare hasn't stopped teasers for the game. “Dragon 4ge day” was promoted by the developer in the lead-up to December 2019, and executive producer Mark Darrah got in on the fun by simply tweeting “Dragon Age.” The incident passed off without incident, but it did serve to reaffirm that BioWare is still working on Dragon Age 4, as evidenced by a beautiful tribute to the game's fans.

Is there any teaser for Dragon Age 4?
Other more recent signs of life for Dragon Age 4 came in the form of dark and delicious concept art, which was revealed during EA's summer event, EA Play Live, as part of a next-generation montage of game footage. Despite the fact that the game was not mentioned by name, EA's chief studio officer, Laura Miele, did mention Bioware in a section that was introduced by her.
Using this next generation of technology, Bioware imagines and creates worlds in which you can become the hero of your own story, and we're using it to make those fantasy worlds a reality for you.”
These Dragon Age 4 teaser images can be found below:
The first teaser trailer for Dragon Age 4 was shown at The Game Awards 2018, and three years later, we still don't know what the game's official title will be. Watch the video above for a more in-depth look, but in essence, we see the hashtag #TheDreadWolfRises along with an ominous greeting from Solas, of Dragon Age: Inquisition fame:
“So, you've finally tracked me down. I have a feeling you have some questions.”
If you're not familiar with Dragon Age lore, the ‘Dread Wolf' moniker refers to Fen'Harel, the Loki-like elven god of betrayal who has (spoiler alert) ties to Solas and appears prominently in Inquisition's epilogue DLC, Trespasser. If you're not familiar with Dragon Age lore, the ‘Dread Wolf' moniker refers to Fen'Harel The most intriguing aspect of the trailer is that it prominently features a red lyrium idol, and it isn't just any idol either. Perhaps it will be familiar to those who have played Dragon Age 2. The idol plays a significant role in the corruption of the templars of Kirkwall.
That's all we know about Dragon Age 4 for the time being, but as soon as we hear anything about a Dragon Age 4 release date, we'll be sure to let you know. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
