It seems BioWare can’t stay away from the media these days. Bloomberg has reported that Electronic Arts has decided to make a major change to Dragon Age 4. The report says developers have been signing off on removing “all planned multiplayer components” of the game, making it a single-player only title.
The decision to cut multiplayer from Dragon Age 4 comes from two main factors.
One was that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, also a single-player game, was a huge success selling more than 10 million copies at launch. The other factor being BioWare’s multiplayer game Anthem. Which struggled to find an audience, which is obviously something the company wants to avoid with Dragon Age 4. BioWare just recently announced it had abandoned its “Anthem Next” update to revitalize the game , instead moving to other projects.
EA declined to comment to Bloomberg about the report, and BioWare has not publicly acknowledged the change yet either.
