During EA’s Q2 Fiscal 2020 earnings report, it was confirmed that Dragon Age 4 won’t see the light of day for at least three years.
Blake Jorgensen, EA’s Chief Financial Officer, said that Dragon Age fans will have a long wait until the next instalment drops. Jorgensen said that Dragon Age 4 “probably comes after [the fiscal year] 2022.”
For those who don’t understand fiscal years, we’ve got you covered. The fiscal year 2022 rather confusingly starts in April 2021 and ends in March 2022.
The fiscal year after is 2023, which starts in April 2022 and ends in March 2023, meaning we won’t see the next Dragon Age until mid-2022 at the absolute earliest.
Dragon Age 4 is sort of an open secret at this point, with the game’s setting all but confirmed thanks to an upcoming anthology. However, all we’ve actually seen of the game so far is a very short teaser trailer dropped during the 2018 Game Awards, which you can watch below.

EA also confirmed that the company plans to hold off on a Battlefield game until the fiscal year 2022. The good news is that Battlefield 6 will be on next-gen hardware, so it’ll be the best experience yet.
Instead, EA plans on improving Apex Legends even further after the game officially reached 70 million total players. This includes expanding the platforms that Apex Legends is available on, which means there’s a high chance the game will land on the Nintendo Switch at some point.
These delays aren’t the worst things in the world, though, and I’d personally take a long wait for a game over development teams being forced to work themselves to the bone. We just have to hope that the sentiment is shared amongst Battlefield and Dragon Age fans.
