According to a recent report, it is claimed that BioWare’s Dragon Age 4 is ditching last-gen consoles, and will be new-gen and PC only.
Dragon Age 4 was first announced in 2018, but despite three years passing, we’ve heard very little on the BioWare RPG. Sure, we’ve had snippets of information from time to time, as well as a teaser trailer. But not much other than that. No juicy details on gameplay and certainly no gameplay footage.
Previously, EA and BioWare have stated that Dragon Age 4 will be coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. However, that appears not to be the case. At least according to VentureBeat. It is claimed that Dragon Age 4 will ditch last-gen consoles in favour of new-gen, and PC only.
In my opinion, I am not surprised by these reports. As already mentioned, Dragon Age 4 was first announced in 2018. If the game would have released within the first three years, I could have seen it launching for both generations. However, if reports are true of a 2023 release, a launch on PS4 and Xbox One feels far less likely to happen.
New-Gen only looks very likely
I would love nothing more than to see owners of both generations getting to play Dragon Age 4. Especially as not everyone is able to buy a new console when they want. That said, I’m sure Dragon Age is a very ambitious game and compromises would have to be made. I would also assume that by 2023, most developers would be looking to release games on the newer systems. Though I could be wrong.
Hopefully, by the time this year is out, we’ll learn more about Dragon Age 4. Not only with details and gameplay footage, but also news of a release date and platforms. With a bit of luck, we’ll get all the info at The Game Awards this year.
