Dragon Age Dreadwolf Rumour

Last we heard, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf was playable from start to finish — at least, in alpha build form. This positive update on the project arrived in October of last year, and led to speculation surrounding the game's eventual release date. Many had thought that the BioWare RPG could be targeting a late 2023 launch, but according to a new report from the reliable Insider Gamer, who cite anonymous sources, Dreadwolf could still be a while off.

"Sources, who have knowledge of the game and its progress, have said that the game still lacks features, completed character lines, and still contains the remnants of the game’s past, which abruptly change direction in early 2021," the article reads.

You may remember that Dreadwolf did, at one point, have some sort of focus on live service elements, but reports back in 2021 claimed that the project was overhauled and transformed into a more traditional single-player experience.

It goes without saying that we've been waiting on Dreadwolf for a long time. It's supposed to have been in development for around eight years now, and we're yet to actually see anything outside of teaser trailers and concept art. It's becoming increasingly clear that things haven't quite gone to plan behind the scenes.

But as is always the case, we'd rather BioWare take its time to make a memorable Dragon Age game instead of rushing a half-baked product. With any luck, we'll hear more about Dreadwolf this year, as the studio surely starts pulling things together.

Insider Gaming goes on to report that the game is more like a "hack n' slash" action title in terms of combat, which is sure to raise a few eyebrows. Apparently, party members can't be controlled — similar to Mass Effect? — and you access different locations from a central hub area. To be fair, though, that last point sounds like most modern BioWare games anyway.
