BioWare is back in the news again, as Bloomberg is reporting that Electronic Arts has decided to make a major change to Dragon Age 4. The report says developers on the game have been given the go-ahead to remove “all planned multiplayer components” of the RPG and make it a single-player only game.
Dragon Age 4 will now be a purely single-player game, the site reported. The decision to cut Dragon Age 4’s reported multiplayer features came from two main points, apparently.
One was that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a single-player game, was a huge success with more than 10 million copies sold at launch. The other vector that reportedly drove the decision was that BioWare’s multiplayer game Anthem struggled to find an audience. Just this week, BioWare announced that is had abandoned its “Anthem Next” plans to revitalize the game and would instead move on to other projects (though the servers are staying online).
