Dragon age 4 making 'great progress' despite not being at EA Play and teases familiar faction

The image shows a group of stylish caped figures, who fans will recognise as the Antivan Crows (their sigil in the bottom right confirms this).

Antivan Crows have briefly popped up in the series before (Zevran was a Crow recruit way back in Dragon Age 1), as well as its spin-off comics and novels.

A theatrically-dressed group of spies and assassins, they operate throughout Dragon Age's world of Thedas.

I'm going to be honest. After playing DA:I, I have very little hope for this game.

I'd love to be proved wrong and for this to be at least on par with Origins, but deep down in my heart, I just know this game will be a steaming pile of dog shit.

Honestly I am looking more into new Ips or underexplored sequal like Jedi Fallen Order 2. Enough with Dragon age and Mass effect. I think its hard enough to deliver a solid trilogy, but this 7th 8th 9th iteration stuff needs to go.

Theatrically dressed SPIES? That's an awesome contradiction considering that a spy shouldn't draw any attention to him/herself and blend in innocuously.

I want to say "make it work Bioware" but..........

I mean...if after DA:I they'd have gone on to make some amazing games it would be another story. But their games have been getting increasingly worse since then with no indication of that changing.
Add to it that lead writer seems to have gone all in on the crazy woke religion in recent years and I have zero hopes for this.

I have same amount of faith in modern Bioware that I have in 343 Industries: none. But, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to the shit show that will follow.

Dragon Age 2 is where the series went to shit. They completely destroyed some of their own cool lore with that game.

LOL so is this being made by the Anthem team? Or the ME: Andromeda team? Which one was supposed to be the “A-team” again?

I don't know... I feel like being negative like this when we know next to nothing about the game itself is quite a shite thing to do, but can you blame any of us for doing that after seeing the kind of people that are currently in charge at Bioware? I really liked DA:I, and it holds a special place in my heart because I remember it as the first PS4 game I actually enjoyed, but I can't help but feel worried for the future of the franchise as we stand today.

Yeah, the next Dragon Age game is going to be fucked. It's not going to be in the level of Dragon Age: Origins greatness.
I bet this game is going to be politically charged with diversity and lack of actual story plot. The game is going to be all woke and lack of actual plot story, it's going to have uninteresting characters.
There will not be any attractive characters and going to fail like Mass Effect Andromeda and Anthem.

I have 0 hopes for this game to be honest.
