BioWare has provided an update on Dragon Age 4, saying that the game is currently "right in the middle of production," while also announcing the departure of its executive producer.

In a blog today, general manager Gary McKay outlined the different phases of game development, noting that Dragon Age 4 was currently in the midst of the phase where the development team is "executing on the blueprint."

"Our blueprint was completed last year, so we’re now focused on building out our vision: creating amazing environments, deep characters, strong gameplay, impactful writing, emotional cinematics – and much more. The blueprint for the game is well understood and the team is focused," he wrote.

However, he continues, the team is now saying goodbye to executive producer Christian Dailey, who started with BioWare back in 2018 and was promoted to executive producer in 2020 after Mark Darrah departed the project. Dragon Age 4 has grappled with other high-profile departures over the years, including general manager Casey Hudson (alongside Darrah in 2020) and senior creative director Matt Goldman late last year.

With Dailey's departure, McKay outlines the current leadership structure at BioWare: Mac Walters, who led development on Mass Effect Legendary Edition, is serving as production director. Dragon Age design director Corrine Busche is the game director, and Dragon Age development veteran Benoit Houle is the director of product development. McKay is also working closely with the team.

McKay concludes by suggesting we'll see more Dragon Age updates going forward in the form of both blogs and social content, while reassuring that the next Mass Effect is still in the works, and the team is currently "actively prototyping new ideas and experiences."

We don't know too much about Dragon Age 4 as of yet. First teased in 2018 at The Game Awards, we've since learned that it will take place in Tevinter, seen several concept art teases, and gotten a glimpse at the return of the Grey Wardens.
