Dragon Age 4 will likely be released within the next 18 months, according to a report from Venturebeat's Jeff Grubb.

Speaking on his show GrubbSnax (paywall), Grubb said he expected the game to arrive in late 2023 (H/T Eurogamer). The game has been in development since at least 2017, and despite BioWare aiming for a 2022 release, reports published last month indicated the game likely wouldn't arrive until 2023.

That push is probably the result of several setbacks, including staff turnover and major design overhauls that turned the game away from online multiplayer and back toward its standard single-player RPG mode after Anthem failed.

Dragon Age 4's story remains mostly mysterious, but BioWare has released teasers that show several characters from previous games will return in the long-awaited sequel. We also know the game will take place in the mage-run country of Tevinter, which players have never visited in-game before. The last mainline Dragon Age game, Inquisition, was released in 2014.
