There's an article on IGN that quotes an ever-reliable analyst regarding a possible release date for DA4. We probably won't return to Thedas until mid- to late-2022. I was honestly hoping for a 2021 release. Thoughts?
Oh, so it's set to release at roughly the same time as The Winds of Winter and the next Avatar movie? Hurray! Seriously, after months of radio-silence we get this? They may as well call it Dragon Age: Bad News at this point.
I would say that it's good that they're taking their time and that this is an indication that they are not rushing it, but then again, they had 7 years to develop Anthem. All the time in the world couldn't have saved that game. So with a "release date" in 2022, it's unlikely that we'll get any really solid news before 2021. Terrific.
Just when I was contemplating starting a thread about DA4 news! I mean, the last bits of news that we've had came almost a year ago, and that was more like a "Hey, it's official - DA4 exists!" announcement with little else attached to it.
I'm not sure if this was how I wanted the 10-year anniversary of DAO's release to go...
^^ Why so cruel? My guess is that we are a year away from the release of The Winds of Winter. Sure, I've been saying this for 4 years... but this time I'm optimistic! 😭
Anyway, this news does not surprise me. When they said that development had restarted, I knew the game would not come out before the end of 2021. Waiting is something I'm used to, it's not a problem. I just hope the final product makes it worth it.
I’m just hoping we get some minor details about the game next year. Concept art at least. We need something!!!!
At least to give us something to look forward to, and then in late 2021 they will hopefully start releasing trailers
Oh the joy. They had 3 years to make 2 and Inquisition and sure, both games had issues, but they were still good. 2, while the worst in the series, is still a great game (and I personally enjoy the combat- Inquisitions pace with Origins tactics). I get BioWare has been under stress, with changes in leadership and anthems ‘problematic’ launch, but all this really confirms is what we already expected- that we still have to wait at least another 2/3 years before we get anything
Unless they decide to do Anthem 2 first for whatever reason and pull AGAIN all fo the DA team... I'll never forgive them for moving staff around needlessly.
^There's not gonna be an Anthem 2. That'd just be flushing money down the toilet.
Well, it seems we agree on something.
I wonder how much time will have passed in-universe between DAI and DA4.
Solas: My brothers and sisters, it has been a difficult three months since I revealed my true nature to the world.
The player: Dude, I've had four kids since I last saw you.
And DA2's 10 years felt more like 10 months. LOL
What do you think?
