BioWare took to Twitter to tease an upcoming "Dragon 4ge Day" scheduled for December 4.
The event will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Dragon Age series, with promises of some sort of mystery reveal for next month. But really, either it's Dragon Age 4 or BioWare is intentionally misdirecting us.
"This year we’re excited to join the community’s party on December 4th and celebrate a decade together in the world we all love," says the studio in a tweet. "See you on 12/4 for Dragon 4ge Day!"
Today marks 10 years of Dragon Age! This year we’re excited to join the community’s party on December 4th and celebrate a decade together in the world we all love. See you on 12/4 for Dragon 4ge Day!— BioWare (@bioware) November 3, 2019
Dragon Age: Origins, the first release in the franchise, launched all the way back in 2009. Its sequel, Dragon Age 2, hit shelves in 2011, followed by Dragon Age: Inquisition in 2014.
The nature of the next Dragon Age has been a mystery, partially because the game has been rebooted internally several times – according to several reports. The most recent of which has suggested it could be a multiplayer live service project in the same vein of Anthem.
While BioWare has been missing from EA’s Q2 FY2020 earnings report, in October one investor did ask about the next Dragon Age. Unfortunately, CFO Blake Jorgensen didn’t provide a particularly satisfying answer. “You know, Dragon Age [is] out there, and we talked about it publicly that it’s in the works and probably comes after fiscal 22,” he said.
FY2022 ends March 2022, which means the game could arrive later that year, or early in 2023.
