Dragon Age 4 was listed as part of the recent Nvidia leaks, so when will we see it released?

If, like me, you've been waiting for the next trip to Thedas then the recent listing of Dragon Age 4 in the Nvidia leaks was a welcome sight. The last we heard of BioWare's high-fantasy sequel was during The Game Awards in 2020, where a short teaser was released featuring a brief appearance by Solas and narration by Varric. The cinematic was certainly exciting, and to have the next Dragon Age on current-gen consoles and PCs alludes to a pretty grand scale game.

With the recent Nvidia leaks, though, fans have wondered if it means new information about Dragon Age 4 is about to come to light. Sadly, Nvdia has already come forward to claim that a lot of the titles included in the list were "speculative." We already know that Dragon Age 4 is in development, so it may be the case that Nvidia were just covering their bases.

When Will Dragon Age 4 Be Released?

From what we can tell, we're likely still a few years off from a release date for Dragon Age 4. As it stands, EA and BioWare have yet to release anything concrete; we've yet to see any gameplay, plot details, or even the full game title. Despite this, there are a few things which we do know. During EA's 2019 earnings call, CFO Blake Jorgensen said of Dragon Age that it "probably comes after fiscal [2022]," meaning April 2022.

Since 2019, though, EA and BioWare have been hard at work planning the future of their games. As of February 2021, the studios made the decision to cancel their reworking of Anthem, following a lackluster launch. This decision led them to reconsider the planned mulitplayer elements for Dragon Age 4 and focus on it as a single-player game only. Considering the stage of development which the game seems to be at, it wouldn't be surprising if we didn't see Dragon Age 4 until deep into 2023.
