BioWare continues to work on Dragon Age 4, but don't expect it to release anytime soon. Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen said on an earnings call that Dragon Age 4 is likely still two or more years away from releasing.

He said fans can expect to play Dragon Age 4 after Fiscal Year 2022. That period runs from April 1, 2021 through March 31, 2022, so fans shouldn't expect Dragon Age 4 until April 2022 at the very soonest. Jorgensen said "plans are underway for that product," which makes it sound like it's still early days for Dragon Age 4.

After much speculation, Dragon Age 4's first teaser was shown during The Game Awards in December 2018. A brief teaser trailer showed some slow pans across artifacts, and a hashtag that likely hints at a central story figure. It read, "The Dread Wolf Rises."

In a 2018 blog post, BioWare's Mark Darrah confirmed that Dragon Age 4 has been in the works for "quite a while." Some of the "core" team that worked on the previous Dragon Age games are back for the new one, while BioWare's plan is to "push BioWare's storytelling to the next level."

Dragon Age 4's creative director is Matthew Goldman. He said BioWare has put together its "strongest team yet" to work on the new Dragon Age. He called it the "most epic quest ever."

Dragon Age 4 may not be the only title BioWare is working on right now, as Jorgensen added that BioWare has other titles in the works, though he did not name them.

The Dragon Age franchise hasn't seen a new release since 2014's Dragon Age: Inquisition. That game was well received and it was a commercial success.
