David Gaider Anticipates Dragon Age: Dreadwolf with Optimism and Concerns Over Fan Reactions

The former narrative lead for Dragon Age is eager to discover the developments BioWare has achieved with Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, while also expressing concerns over fan reactions, humorously expecting patience and understanding.

David Gaider, who played a critical role in developing the storyline for the entire Dragon Age series and its additional content, has commented on reports suggesting a release date for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf before April 2025. He believes that BioWare might face urgency from their publisher, EA, to launch the game earlier, possibly during the 2024 holiday season, which is traditionally a peak time for blockbuster game releases. This trend emerges even though there's been a noticeable change within the sector, with firms such as Capcom beginning to favor the launch of their significant games in the initial months of the year, specifically from January through April.

Gaider has expressed a strong curiosity about the new directions BioWare is taking with Dreadwolf. Being outside of BioWare's current project circle, he is out of touch with the company's detailed development process and was also concerned about whether BioWare employees affected by layoffs received adequate severance packages.

Reflecting on the potential reaction from the Dragon Age community to Dreadwolf, Gaider hints at a cautious optimism, perhaps drawing from previous experiences such as the contentious reception to the ending of Mass Effect 3. This historical context provides a backdrop for his apprehension and understanding of the passionate but sometimes critical nature of the gaming community.
