Dragon Age 4 In “Middle Of Production” As Producer Leaves BioWare
Dragon Age fans may be used to sporadic updates regarding the series’ next installment, but it appears BioWare is keen to offer another new update only weeks after the last one. As divulged in a new post to the BioWare Blog, studio GM Gary McKay assured work on Dragon Age 4 was still coming along swimmingly, with the upcoming title said to be “right in the middle of production” and the team focused on “creating amazing environments, deep characters, strong gameplay, impactful writing, emotional cinematics – and much more.”
As the title continues to progress, a mainstay of BioWare won’t be part of it for much longer. As per the blog post, Christian Dailey, executive producer of the Dragon Age series, was announced to be officially leaving the studio, concluding his work on DA, as well as four years as part of BioWare. Dailey was previously in charge of the ill-fated Anthem 2.0 project before leading development on the next Dragon Age game. During his tenure, Dailey was known for sharing various pieces of concept art surrounding the upcoming release.

Years after the game was originally announced, this news doesn’t paint the most exciting pictures for Dragon Age 4, especially as it marks the latest of a long line of departures for BioWare, including former GM Casey Hudson who left back in 2020. With that said, fans may still take solace in their return to Thedas. As the team reaches “the middle of production,” BioWare has repeatedly assured Dragon Age 4 is still in “excellent hands” as the title marches forward with aims to recapture the spirit of old-school BioWare.
