BioWare has offered an official update regarding progress on Dragon Age 4, confirming that the game is “right in the middle of Production”, which the studio describes as being “a great feeling”.

“Our blueprint was completed last year, so we’re now focused on building out our vision: creating amazing environments, deep characters, strong gameplay, impactful writing, emotional cinematics – and much more,” writes General Manager Gary McKay. “The blueprint for the game is well understood and the team is focused.”

McKay also noted that it'll be sharing more on Dragon Age 4's development “in the form of blogs and social content" throughout the year, stating: “As we move through development we’ll also be in regular communication with players who sit on our community council.”

The post also bids farewell to Executive Producer Christian Dailey, who leaves BioWare having joined in 2018. Corrine Busche will take over as Game Director on Dragon Age 4, while Mass Effect alum Mac Walters and Dragon Age veteran Benoit Houle will serves as Director of Product Development.

As for BioWare's work on the next Mass Effect, McKay notes that the project, headed up by Mike Gamble and a team of seasoned developers, is undergoing active “prototyping” of “new ideas and experiences”. McKay adds that “AAA next-gen games take a long time to make – and we know our fans may want them sooner. But our Number One priority needs to be quality, and that simply takes time to get it right.”

Recent reports, meanwhile, state that Dragon Age 4 has “no chance” of releasing any time in 2022, although the game is apparently in “good shape” for a 2023 launch on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. An official release window has yet to be confirmed, however.
