The existence of the next title was confirmed by BioWare’s first ever guest writer, Alexis Kennedy. In an interview with Eurogamer, Kennedy stated that he was writing content for the next Dragon Age game based on storylines and in-game lore.
“What I can say is I have been given considerable autonomy to work on a storyline bit of lore which is well-segregated from other parts of the game.” He added, “It’s nothing that grandiose, but it is distinct. It’s a bit of lore which has not been addressed much to date in Dragon Age,” Kennedy told Eurogamer.
Kennedy joined BioWare as a guest writer in February and initially stated that he was working on “a significant piece of content,” without specifying under which project – although Dragon Age’s executive producer, Mark Derrah tweeted a warm welcome for Kennedy.
Great now I have to figure out how to work "Worldbuilding" into all my conversations with Alexis.

The last iteration of the franchise was released in 2014 with Dragon Age: Inquisition that was known to wrap up several storylines from the previous installments of Dragon Age: Origins (2009) and Dragon Age: 2 (2011) while opening up new possibilities for the world of Thedas.
With a sense of closure for several characters and the lore’s narrative while opening up a new mythos, it sets the stage for a new narrative encompassing the previously established material for the new Dragon Age game. Key characters such as Inquisition’s protagonist, known as The Inquisitor and the mysterious omnipotence of Solas may still play a large role or a significant mention.
For fans of the franchise who are excited with this confirmation, they can follow the canon spinoff from Inqusition via the new Dragon Age comics known as Knight Errant. The monthly ongoing comics is published under Dark Horse comics and will revisit Kirkwall with a number of new characters with the ever popular Varric Tethras.
