The departure of creative director Matt Goldman from BioWare at the end of November significantly affected the development of the title. Since then, the developers have been in no hurry to share information about the future game. However, the day before, Jeff Grubb during a podcast said that the studio and EA intend to release Dragon Age in the next 1.5 years.
Jeff Grubb said on the latest episode of GrubbSnax, Dragon Age 4 is in very good shape, they're hitting their milestones. The game is on schedule, which is about 18 months out from today. He expects it to release maybe late 2023 at the earliest.— Idle Sloth (@IdleSloth84) February 18, 2022
In addition, Grubb said that the developers are not going to remaster the first three parts of the franchise like the same Mass Effect Legendary Edition. The reasons for this may be the difference in game engines and the lack of a single plot, which will complicate the work on the re-release.
The debut trailer for the fourth Dragon Age was released in December 2020. At that time, BioWare said they were in the early stages of development.
