EA dropped a Battlefield 2042 gameplay trailer at E3, but otherwise skipped gaming's biggest show, preferring to hold its reveals until later this month at EA Play Live. We now know that two games won't be among those reveals: Dragon Age 4 and the new Mass Effect.
In a tweet today, BioWare said that it "won't be showing anything at EA Play Live" this year. The studio points to today's Star Wars: The Old Republic livestream for the latest news it can share, and otherwise says that it's "hard at work" on the next Dragon Age and Mass Effect games.
We’re hard at work creating the next @dragonage and @masseffect games and have some exciting stuff coming to @SWTOR this year. While we won’t be showing anything at EA Play Live, be sure to check out our SWTOR Livestream at 12PM PT today for info on what’s to come!July 1, 2021
We've known about the next Dragon Age (which we've been calling Dragon Age 4 for simplicity's sake) for a while, but it's still likely two or more years away. All we've seen so far are teases and concept art.
The same is true of the new Mass Effect, which we first learned about more recently. We know that it's closely connected to the original trilogy—popular blue alien Liara appears in the teaser—and that some series veterans are returning to work on it. It's in early development, though, and feels like something we might play around the time The Elder Scrolls 6 comes out.
EA Play Live will be streamed on July 22.
