Over the weekend, BioWare participated in the officially unofficially Dragon Age Day, which is basically the equivalent of Mass Effect’s N7 Day, but for the studio’s fantasy series.
While the day was a mostly light affair, with some of the big reveals being new statues of characters like Varric and Solas, fans of the series did get some short stories from BioWare’s writing team. This included “Won’t Know When,” a story about Grey Wardens, and “The Flame Eternal,” a short about necromancers. Beyond that, BioWare confirmed it won’t be revealing anything new about the next Dragon Age game for the remainder of this year, which is good confirmation to give considering The Game Awards is this week, and has been the stage of the series’ reveals in the past. However, the studio has confirmed it will be showing more of the game in 2022.
Speaking of building new worlds and stories for you to explore, we want to let you all know that we’re still hard at work on building the next single-player focused experience for Dragon Age. We’re excited for next year when we can talk more about what we’re working on.

The next Dragon Age has been in a state of flux for awhile now, with the last game in the series, Inquisition, launching in 2014. The game’s final DLC, Trespasser, launched a little under a year later, and solidified that Solas, the party member turned surprise antagonist, would be a central force in whatever came next. However, the latest cinematic trailer for the new game implied that the Inquisitor, the protagonist of Inquisition, wouldn’t be returning as the starring character. And given the personal nature of this conflict, seems like a bad call, to me.
