Another Game Awards world premiere
A new Dragon Age is something that we’ve known has been in the works for a long while now. The series has been on pause for six years now, patiently waiting its turn behind the likes of Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem. But it’s almost time to go back to Thedas.
Geoff Keighley has confirmed that the next Dragon Age will make an appearance at The Game Awards, which takes place on December 10:

It’s about time! Here’s where we’re at thus far. At The Game Awards 2018, BioWare teased a new Dragon Age game with the Dread Wolf trailer. Last year, despite very much seeming on-track for an official reveal, the game was never actually announced. At this June’s EA Play stream, BioWare showed some concept art that definitely had to be the first images of the new Dragon Age. Today, to celebrate Dragon Age Day (which always comes around on December 4), BioWare released some short stories from its writers that definitely seem to be prepping us for an imminent reveal.
While we’re six days out from The Game Awards, we’re also just one day removed from news that BioWare GM Casey Hudson and Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah both abruptly left the company at the same time. Even though they predictably maintain that the next Dragon Age is in good hands and shaping up nicely, their departures will have some effect. With Dragon Age, it’s always a twisted and convoluted tale, and that extends beyond the stuff with dragons and high fantasy.
