Dragon Age 4 is reportedly coming only to Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC, not getting a last-gen version

The upcoming Dragon Age sequel won’t be releasing on last-gen platforms such as PS4 and the Xbox One, according to GamesBeat.

Staff writer Jeff Grub says that he’s “confirmed that EA is planning the game only for the new-gen systems”, but neither EA themselves or developer BioWare have publicly confirmed the news. The news originally came from lead player designer Daniel Nordlander’s LinkedIn profile, as spotted by Twitter user Faizan Shaikh.

The game was originally teased back in 2018 at The Game Awards, but not much has been shown since then other than a handful of pieces of concept art, and mentions in various EA related presentations. There were supposedly at one point meant to be multiplayer and live-service elements to the game, but they were reportedly scrapped after the poor performance of BioWare’s looter shooter Anthem, which might explain the radio silence on updates regarding the game.

The last major release in the Dragon Age series was Dragon Age: Inquisition in 2014, a title that received very favourable reviews. Fans have been clamouring for a sequel for years, so the reveal of a new game was incredibly well received. 

It isn’t too surprising the game will be coming to next-gen only, especially with speculation that the game won’t be released until 2023. We’re coming up to the first anniversaries of the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X, with a number of titles having been released on last gen consoles. It’s only a matter of time before developers start focusing on next-gen in order to push the consoles to the max.
