While we patiently await the Dragon Age Dreadwolf trophies to come to life, BioWare has made a sad announcement. BioWare has recently axed nearly 50 jobs within its studio. However, it still believes Dragon Age Dreadwolf will reach its full potential. Make sure to check out our Dragon Age Dreadwolf PS5 news guide to stay in the loop with all things Dragon Age..

Dragon Age Dreadwolf and Mass Effect to be unaffected by BioWare layoffs

The news of the layoffs was announced in a blog post on BioWare's official website. It was here where it was revealed that BioWare would be "eliminating approximately 50 roles" in order to meet the needs of the studio's upcoming projects — which we assume to be Dragon Age Dreadwolf and Mass Effect.
The blog post goes on to say that after careful planning, the team now has a long-term vision that will "preserve the health" of BioWare and allow the studio to do what it does best and "create exceptional story-driven single-player experiences filled with vast worlds and rich characters."

According to Gary McKay, the general manager at BioWare, this vision helps to "balance the current needs of the studio — namely, ensuring Dragon Age Dreadwolf is an outstanding game — with its future, including the success of the next Mass Effect."
McKay went on to state: "If you’re wondering how all of this will impact development of Dragon Age Dreadwolf, let me be clear that our dedication to the game has never wavered. Our commitment remains steadfast, and we all are working to make this game worthy of the Dragon Age name. We are confident that we’ll have the time needed to ensure Dreadwolf reaches its full potential."

McKay finishes off the blog post by sharing his thanks to everyone who has worked at BioWare "past and present" and the fans for their continued support of the Studio and the games it creates. McKay also teased that BioWare is eager to share some Dreadwolf news in the coming months, so we have our fingers crossed for that.

Dragon Age DreadwolfDragon Age Dreadwolf where are you at!

My heart goes out to all of those impacted by the layoffs over at BioWare. I also have high hopes this really won't impact either Dragon Age Dreadwolf or Mass Effect, but I won't deny I am slightly worried for the future of these games and BioWare as a studio. The studio has been on rocky grounds with the last few releases and it really could do with knocking it out of the park for Dragon Age Dreadwolf. However, expectations are going to be astronomically high after the positive reception Baldur's Gate 3 has received — a game in the same genre and similar setting. So, all eyes are on BioWare to smash this.

What do you make of this news? Are you nervous about BioWare and Dragon Age going forward? Do you think this situation will impact Dragon Age negatively? We can only hope this will be the case, as we would love to see it join our best PlayStation RPGs list. Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below!
