Bioware's long-awaited Dragon Age 4 probably won't launch on last-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. According to reports it will be a true next-gen game with releases on PS5, XSX|S and PC.
We have not heard much about Dragon Age 4, Bioware's next big RPG, but that could change very soon since the game has been in development for a couple of years now. So far, we only got to see the first cinematic trailer at The Game Awards show last year, which gave us a closer look at the game's setting and certain locations and characters.
Another trailer could be coming again at The Game Awards in December 2021 but until then we have some news regarding the platforms that the next Dragon Age game will be launching. According to a Linkedin profile of Bioware dev , the game will be next-gen only, meaning it won't launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
This information has been corroborated by reliable Jeff Grubb in his most recent report on VentureBeat . Grubb confirmed that the game will only release on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
You may ask what does this mean for the game? Well, it means a lot more time for the developers to focus on the next-gen and PC versions of the game, which should result in better optimisation, higher attention to detail and of course, graphical fidelity.
Now, the only thing that remains is the actual gameplay footage of Dragon Age 4, so we can actually see if the game was worth waiting all these years. Given Bioware's recent track record, we are doubtful but at the same time, we still hope that this will be the best Dragon Age game since Dragon Age Origins. Fingers crossed.
