When does Dragon Age: The Veilguard release?

Dragon Age fans finally have something to look forward to.

Dragon Age: The Veilguard’s development experienced several discouraging twists and turns. But thanks to a recent reveal and a name change at Summer Games Fest 2024, we don’t have to wait much longer.

Originally revealed at the Game Awards in December 2023, BioWare revealed a teaser for a new Dragon Age game, but the trailer didn’t include a release date. The video promised more information would be revealed in the summer of 2024, which we finally got.

When does Dragon Age: Dreadwolf release? Rumors and release window

During an episode of the Game Mess podcast, VentureBeat reporter Jeff Grubb revealed Dragon Age: Dreadwolf could launch sometime in late 2024 and added BioWare employees feel “confident” about the window.

This was later confirmed at Summer Games Fest 2024 when a trailer revealed that the new Dragon Age game, now under a new name, was locked in a launch date in fall 2024. Obviously, that doesn’t give us a concrete date, but its still better than all the rumors we have dealt with the past few years.

BioWare first announced the fourth installment in the Dragon Age franchise at the Game Awards show in 2018. After years of not getting any updates, unease started to creep in when a widely disliked gameplay leak in 2023 rubbed players the wrong way. To make matters worse, a few months later, the studio laid off 50 employees, after multiple titles such as Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem underperformed. Then, in October 2023, seven employees sued BioWare in a bid to receive fair compensation for getting their benefits eliminated from termination pay after being laid off.

Hopes were already dwindling, but expectations plummeted ahead of the 2023 Game Awards as excitement reached an “all-time low.” BioWare came through when fans needed it most and finally delivered the long-awaited teaser trailer.

Even if Dragon Age players still have a long time to wait, any positive developments will be welcomed with open arms, given the circumstances of what’s been an extremely turbulent development.

If we had to guess, we expect to see more of Dragon Age: The Veilguard at Opening Night Live a Gamescom in August, hopefully with an actual release date this time around.
