Bioware has taken to their blog to finally say that new Dragon Age "stuff" is getting announced next month.
Bioware and its developers haven't been shy about talking around a new Dragon Age game. While it is clear its efforts are pretty firmly focused on Anthem for the time being, word that Dragon Age is brewing in the background hits every couple of months. This is promising for fans of Bioware RPGs, who were worried about the multiplayer focus of the developer's new pet, Anthem. However, as for concrete information about a new entry in the fantasy favourite, that has been pretty elusive.
Well, it might be time to get excited. In the developer's latest blog post it was announced that news on a new Dragon Age something is not far away at all. In the post, Bioware's Casey Hudson said we could expect to hear news from the franchise in weeks, if not days. He said:
If you've been following these blogs, or myself and Mark Darrah on Twitter, you know we're also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff. Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we're excited to continue its legacy. Look for more on this in the coming month (though I won't tell you where to look…)
Now, lets hold our horses a little here. "Stuff" could mean anything. New Dragon Age drink coasters is 'stuff'. However, that would be a pretty reckless announcement, especially as fans have been asking for a new game for a long time. At the same time, I can see a world where a side-project could be announced. I can also see a brand new, full game getting announced too. We will have to see.
When exactly in December? Who knows. The Game Awards are next week and that would be a good bet, but Bioware might also take their own time to announce whatever this is. Here's hoping, it meets fan's hefty expectations.
