For Mass Effect fans eagerly anticipating the next Mass Effect game, informally termed Mass Effect 4 by some and Mass Effect 5 by others, a new Dragon Age: Dreadwolf update from EA isn’t the best news. You shouldn’t anticipate playing the new Mass Effect game anytime soon, whatever you call it.
The long-awaited next game in the sci-fi RPG series hasn’t been mentioned by EA, but it recently gave an update on the release of Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, BioWare’s most recent game, which gave some indication of when the next Mass Effect will be released.
Dragon Age: Dreadwolf will not be released between now and March 2024, according to EA, which confirmed its roster of games for the upcoming fiscal year this week. In other words, April 1, 2024, is the earliest date it can be released.
What connection does this have to the newest Mass Effect? While most of BioWare is working on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, the upcoming Mass Effect is in pre-production with a small team. And until the new Dragon Age game is released, nothing will change.
In other words, the new Mass Effect is getting further away from release as production on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is more delayed.

The new Mass Effect will probably be released no earlier than 2027 if Dragon Age: Dreadwolf launches the following year. This is the earliest it will be removed because it anticipates a complete three-year development cycle for the game. When everything is considered, this seems a little ambitious.
Therefore a 2028 or perhaps a 2029 release seems more feasible. And if the game’s development follows the same path as Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, a release in 2030 or later is unquestionably possible.
