While it isn’t transparent because Laidlaw left or either his depart was voluntary, a response from Mass Effect writer Michael Gamble suggested Laidlaw left BioWare of his possess volition.
Laidlaw’s depart from BioWare brings adult some questions about a destiny of Dragon Age. While Laidlaw refused to endorse that Dragon Age 4 was in a works before withdrawal a franchise, he did endorse that something associated to Dragon Age is in a works, going so distant as to contend that BioWare Edmonton was employing people for a subsequent Dragon Age game.
However, as distant as how low into a growth routine a subsequent Dragon Age is, it competence be progressing in prolongation than we formerly thought, as Dragon Age executive writer Mark Darrah tweeted during Laidlaw that he was “so excited” for a former artistic executive “to see what a subsequent Dragon Age will be.” This creates it sound like a subsequent Dragon Age is still a ways off.
In a meantime, BioWare Edmonton’s subsequent project, Anthem, is scheduled for a late 2018 recover on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
