BioWare has plans for eventual Dragon Age sequels


The Dragon Age is pretty damn long

Depending on who you ask, Dragon Age is either one of the best RPG franchises to come out of BioWare in a long time or a lot of failed potential from a once great company. While I never personally cared for the series, I do admire how the PC version of the first game can be played exclusively like Icewind Dale or Baldur’s Gate from an overhead viewpoint, which is really old-school. I just wish the rest of the series reveled in that attention to detail, since the games are mostly a hodge-podge of action elements with lite-RPG systems.

If you’re big into the series though, you’ll be happy to know that BioWare has plans for a theoretical Dragon Age 4 and 5! Mike Laidlaw, the senior creative director for BioWare, told a fan on Twitter that his team has a plan for the series that involves being two games ahead.

There is no planned ending for DA. There is an evolving plan that tends to look 2 games ahead or so.

Thus, I could tell you what -could- be in a theoretical game 5, if there were a theoretical game 4 happening.

But I strongly believe that if you try to hold to a rigid plan that is a decade old by the time you reach the end, you are wasting ops.

As you can see, it looks like Dragon Age won’t be ending anytime soon. It has been roughly three years since the release of Inquisition, though, so maybe Laidlaw is hinting at a new sequel being in the works. Even if he isn’t, fans won’t have to worry about the series ever randomly ending only to be revived with a half-baked interquel.
