Everyone that has played Dragon Age: Inquisition knew that Dragon Age 4 would be coming sooner or later. It’s been 7 years since the last Dragon Age came out and after the teaser from The Game Awards 2020, we can’t help but wonder… what is the Dragon Age 4 release date?
The announcement of Dragon Age 4 was not nearly as big of a surprise as the new Mass Effect that was announced at The Game Awards: While everyone thought that Mass Effect wouldn’t continue on with Shepard’s Story, Dragon Age: Inquisition, or rather its DLC Trespasser, made it very obvious that Dragon Age 4 would be coming.
Set in Tevinter – which was now also confirmed, by the way – the game will follow in the footsteps of the last games and will feature a new hero.
But here’s what’s everyone is asking themselves…
What is the Dragon Age 4 Release Date?
What most people are probably wondering is: why the hell is Dragon Age 4 taking so long, when the other Dragon Age games came out every three years? With this game, it's been SEVEN YEARS since the last. So it's about time we got a release date, right?
We did get a teaser at The Game Awards 2018, but the game was still in pre-production a year later. And even when the Behind the Scenes Trailer from BioWare dropped in August 2020, the game was still in “early production”. And while the trailer from The Game Awards 2020 did look promising and gave fans hope of an early release... well... no.

In EA’s Q2 2020 Earnings Call, EA’s chief operating officer Blake Jorgensen said that “it probably comes after fiscal ’22”, which in non-economic terms means, that Dragon Age 4 will most likely not be released before April of 2022, which is when the fiscal year 2023 starts.
Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Inquisition were both released very late in their respective years. Given the fact that we do not even have a name for the game yet and that promotion for the game is so little AND the fact that they said — only last year — that the game was still in “early production” we predict a release date for Dragon Age 4 for late 2023.
However, we hope that BioWare truly takes the time they need. Everyone remembers the chaos that Andromeda caused and nobody wants a fiasco like that again.
Even if it’s later than 2023, we’ll be okay with it, because we want Dragon Age 4 to be the best possible version it can be.
Who knows, maybe they’ll release it late 2024 and make this a happy ten-year anniversary thing.
