Dragon Age Creative Director Teases Something is Up With the Series
Yeah, that's pretty vague, but the team is apparently staffing up.
Things have been a bit quiet with the Dragon Age series since Inquisition hit is late 2014. But good news, fans. Developer BioWare assures us that they have not forgotten the popular franchise.
"Something is happening with Dragon Age," Creative Director Mike Laidlaw said in a podcast episode of The 1099 (via The Escapist). Yeah, that's pretty light on specifics, and a bit of a "no duh" comment, but he added that the team is "hiring a lot of people." Whether that translates into a sequel, a change in direction or even a mobile game remains to be seen, so take it for what it's worth.
"There are other things in process but unfortunately I can't talk about them until they are realized. I am pretty excited about a few of them. Things continue apace," he said. "As I've jokingly said, I am the creative director for the Dragon Age franchise and they haven't fired me yet."
The Mass Effect series was put on hiatus in May, with BioWare Montreal being downgraded to a support role. BioWare Austin continues to work on the Star Wars series, primarily Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO. That leaves BioWare Edmonton at the front of new development with its Anthem IP and the Dragon Age series.
One thing is for certain: BioWare will continue to pump out content, hopefully at the quality level fans were accustomed to before Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Oh boy, I can't wait for the announcement.
"Joining the ranks of Blizzard, CD Projekt Red, and Bethesda Softworks, BioWare is proud to launch their digital card game based in and of a western fantasy game universe. Get ready to collect cards and build your deck in Dragon Age: Blighted Hands!"
Regardless of what it actually is, I hope it's a good game and wish them all well.
