The producer of Anthem and other senior members of the project have now apparently started working on Dragon Age 4. Anthem has been a major failure for Bioware, so hopefully, with this next project, they can bring back their glory days.
Dragon Age 4 was first teased at The Game Awards. It was a short teaser that didn’t offer anything substantial but just proved that the game is coming soon. Now that Anthem is out, Bioware Austin has started to work on the live service content for the game leaving the rest of the main Bioware team to focus their efforts on the next Dragon Age.
Dragon Age 4 is super early in development so there is a good chance that we might not see it for a while. Kotaku had published a detailed investigation behind the troubled development of Anthem and the internal struggles of Bioware. It showed that the company was in a serious need for change if they wanted to deliver timely and complete games in the future, and hopefully, this can happen with the next Dragon Age.
We aren't working on Dragon Age 3
We aren't working on Dragon Age 5
I guess that's that.

The news of the Anthem lead staff members moving on to Dragon Age 4 was confirmed by the game producer Mark Darrah on Twitter. He indirectly revealed his involvement with the next Dragon Age in a tweet.
Anthem Producer Michael Gamble confirmed that involvement of Bioware Austin with Ben Irving and Chad Robertson taking the charge for releasing future live content and updates for Anthem.
I absolutely love this. The misery of this project almost turns me on.
Well, Anthem is definitely dead now. I question the DA4 decision as well, BioWare Edmonton is the Mass Effect team, the Huston guys are the ones that did DA. Same style so I’m sure they’re mechanically on board, but clearly they’re having employee trouble. Shuffling around work is what you do when the people you have can’t do it. Sadly, this is the end of BioWare. As a studio. BioWare actually died years ago, the senior staff and talent just left. Don’t blame them.
Guess you are working on Dragon Age 4 … for now.
