BioWare GM: We’ve Got Several Big Projects in the Works, Dragon Age 4 Pre-Production Going Well
BioWare General Manager Casey Hudson published a ‘September Update’ blog post on the studio’s website, sharing some of what the internal BioWare teams have been up to lately.
The post includes some interesting tidbits on what we can expect next from the studio. Hudson said there are several ‘big projects’ underway and he also teased (by referring to the Dread Wolf, who is believed to be central in the story of Dragon Age 4) that pre-production for Dragon Age 4 is going well so far.
Other Stuff Going On
We have several other big projects in the works. I wish I could tell you more about them, but they’re mostly super-secret right now. I can say however that one of our projects has a large and growing team in Edmonton working through pre-production, and based on the progress I’m seeing, I can confirm that indeed the Dread Wolf rises.
The BioWare GM provided an update on Anthem as well, noting that the Cataclysm update has been just one step into the plans to improve the game, though these will take some time.
Over the last few weeks we’ve been ramping up our Cataclysm events in Anthem – a season-long event with new arenas, enemies, challenges, and rewards. We have a big team working on Anthem in both Austin and Edmonton, and while it’s been great to see the community response to Cataclysm, I know there’s a lot more work to do to bring out the full potential of the game. We have plans for those more fundamental improvements, but they’ll take time. While the team works towards the longer-term vision of the game, they will also continue to deliver updates to features and content. I believe in Anthem and would love to see its world grow, evolve, and thrive for years to come. Thanks for your patience and support as we do the work of constantly improving and expanding the experience.
