Bioware’s General Manager Casey Hudson addresses Dragon Age 4 concerns

  • Posting on Twitter, Casey Hudson addressed the concerns with the following Tweet:

“Reading lots of feedback regarding Dragon Age, and I think you’ll be relieved to see what the team is working on. Story & character focused. Too early to talk details, but when we talk about “live” it just means designing a game for continued storytelling after the main story.”

  • The announcement follows BioWare’s Mark Darrah’s news earlier this week that he’s Executive Producer on Anthem and a new Dragon Age game.
  • Some fans feared that Dragon Age would become victim of EA’s notorious monetization practices.
