PC Gamer - BioWare Boss Casey Hudson is teasing an upcoming Dragon Age announcement is coming in December.

And, December 6th is when The Game Awards (2018) is coming, so...maybe the announcement will be there?

Venture Beat - Rumor: DA4 is at least 3 years away (in probably 2021):

Wow, now this is really something to read...


Jason Schreier of Kotaku on "The Past & Present of Dragon Age 4":

https://kotaku.com/the-past-and-present-of-dragon-age-4-1833913351

- DA4 (original version) was once code-named Joplin.
- It was built off of DA: Inq's tools and that game's version of Frostbite.
- It was about playing as spies and you could go on heists.
- Joplin was A LOT smaller than DA: Inq and had way less "fetch" quests/MMO style quests/UbiSoft open-world questing.
- Joplin also had A LOT more decision-making, choices, and branching paths...and was definitely built for replay-ability (i.e. purposely built as the OPPOSITE of DA: Inq's Hinterlands area).
- A lot of the team was very happy and proud with how Joplin was going.
- Joplin got put on hold b/c of ME: Andromeda and Anthem, as those were in trouble and needed to be worked on.
- A lot of the Joplin team, they got moved over to ME: Andromeda and/or Anthem.
- EA's wanted more "Live Service" stuff, so DA4: Joplin version got canned.
- DA4 got rebooted and they are using the framework and version of Frostbite from Anthem.
- The new DA4 rebooted version that is now currently in development is known as Morrison.
- Shortly after Morrison (the DA4 reboot), this is when Mike Laidlaw left.
- This is also when Mark Darrah became the executive producer for both DA4 (Morrison version) and Anthem.
- Some at BioWare that Jason talked to, they called Morrison basically "Anthem with Dragons".
- Some disagree with the above statement of Morrison being "Anthem with Dragons."
- We don't know yet how far the Multiplayer portion for Morrison will go.
- Main quest of Morrison should be able to be done all alone, even if the game becomes online-only.
- We don't know if the entire Morrison game will be online-only.
- We don't know if Morrison will have an offline mode.
- The next stuff mentioned isn't etched in stone yet.
- Some ideas tossed around for MP include a drop-in/drop-out co-op like the old BG games had.
- Another idea tossed around: some quests in MP could change not only based on what players locally decide, but also based on what players around the entire globe have decided.
