Dreadwolf Post Has Fans Excited

A simple post from a Dragon Age: Dreadwolf developer excites the fanbase and leads to some lively discussion about its development.

Earlier this year, BioWare revealed the official title of ‘Dragon Age 4‘to be Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, and that has kept a flame lit underneath the fanbase ever since. The subtitle has many implications and meanings, such as how it is a direct sequel (although that was obvious), how this game emphasizes the villain over the hero, how the spelling of Dreadwolf is one word when the franchise typically treats it as two, and on top of that how, it is an anagram for Fade World.

All in all, there’s a lot for fans to be excited about, and many are looking to BioWare to deliver with Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. It’s likely the next BioWare release and will undoubtedly set the tone for the dev’s future and for Mass Effect 4after Anthem destroyed a lot of BioWare’s goodwill. Interestingly enough now, it seems fans are excited about a relatively innocuous tweet from a developer.

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf game director Corinne Busche recently shared an image of her PS5 DualSense controller and a coffee cup, with the simple caption: “couch, coffee, controller, and ready to play” followed by a series of emojis. Cleverly enough, these emojis all spell out Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, with the overall implication being that she is playing dreadwolfas in testing the game on a console.


Twitter replies decidedly call it torture or ask for a small sample, like even a pixel, while the hype also spilled over onto Reddit. Of course, it comes as no surprise that the game director is playing/testing Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, but many were just excited about the small micro-update about it. Indeed, it’s possible fans see more later this year, as dragon age/BioWare as a whole has a good relationship with The Game Awardsand many were excitedly talking about its eventual release.

Although nothing is official and fans should keep their expectations in check, some firmly believe they’ll see the title in 2023. A few even referenced Jeff Grubb’s remarks that it was at least 18 months away (as of the time it was said), which would put Dragon Age: Dreadwolf‘s release window into late 2023. That just excites even more fans as developers seemingly talk more and more about the game, even in microdoses. Of course, a delay is always possible, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see the game slip into 2024. But based on the reaction to this simple tweet, it’s clear fans are excited about the next chapter in the franchise.
