The internet went crazy for a recent tweet by BioWare, which appeared to suggest a Dragon Age 4 announcement was imminent. However, the reality is far less exciting. And that news is not incoming. Apparently.
But I have to admit it certainly reads as if our dreams are coming true – that ‘4’ is certainly strategically placed!
The cryptic message read, “Today marks 10 years of Dragon Age! This year we’re excited to join the community’s party on December 4th and celebrate a decade together in the world we all love. See you on 12/4 for Dragon 4ge Day!” And it was specifically the ‘4ge’ bit that caused a stir amongst fans, for good reason. But there’s a perfectly innocent explanation, unfortunately.
I’ll leave it up to you whether you think it sounds legit, or not.
‘Dragon 4ge Day’ is the first official name for the celebration. And the number 4 simply refers to the games that have been released to date. There’s even a dedicated website, which proves the next installment has no place in this catchphrase.
But surely the team knew how that Tweet was going to be interpreted? It’s not like most of us are walking around with an official glossary, after all.
This bad news means the estimated arrival date of Dragon Age 4 – in roughly three years time – seems to remain. And any update about its development is still not for our ears. But this commitment to the Dragon Age community certainly confirms the studio is still besotted with the series. And who knows, they could still surprise us on December 4th.
Today marks 10 years of Dragon Age! This year we’re excited to join the community’s party on December 4th and celebrate a decade together in the world we all love. See you on 12/4 for Dragon 4ge Day!
