At The Game Awards, BioWare announced that a new Dragon Age game was indeed in development though there was nothing else to confirm aside from it. While that’s the case now, we can now at least pencil in that the untitled game will include multiplayer.
What the franchise Technical Director for Dragon Age will do at BioWare:
The franchise Technical Director is the most senior engineering lead on the game team and a key member of the Dragon Age franchise leadership. Ultimately responsible for ensuring that we delight our players, they build and mentor the engineering team, build and execute the game technology plan, and define and direct the development process. They collaborate with central technology groups and other game teams to coordinate technology strategy and achieve the best results for BioWare and EA.
Looks to be standard stuff, right? Scrolling down, under the “qualifications” part, one of the bulletpoints include this line:
- Experience developing multiplayer games.
If this indeed comes to fruition,which we’re fully expecting it to given the game is still in active development, it won’t be that much of a surprise given the last main entry in the series, Dragon Age: Inquisition which was released back in 2014, featured multiplayer.
