Dragon Age: Dreadwolf Recruiting Mass Effect Team and Series Veteran to Help Finish the Game

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has recruited Mark Darrah and enlisted the help of the Mass Effect team in order to finish the game. EA said because the next Mass Effect is still in its pre-production stage, it won’t be an issue for them to work on Dragon Age: Dreadwolf as well.

Mark Darrah left BioWare in 2020, serving as the developer’s executive producer and project director up until that point. He has worked on all three of the now-released Dragon Age games. Darrah left a heartfelt message to all the fans in December 2020 when he announced his retirement, along with Casey Hudson, who also played a crucial role in creating the Dragon Age franchise. At the time, he described his departure as a “difficult decision,” but he voiced his belief that even without him, Dragon Age would thrive and be in good hands. Currently, the reason why he decided to return to BioWare and help finish Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is still unknown.


EA said Mark Darrah approached the BioWare team about returning, and his offer was gladly accepted. He will now work as a consultant, helping to maintain the legacy of the Dragon Age series. The leadership around the game will remain unchanged with Corinne Busche as game director. As a reaction to the news, Darrah also posted on his Twitter account, promising to release a video on his YouTube channel which will explain his decision. Besides him, the Mass Effect pre-production team has also been welcomed on board to help polish Dragon Age: Dreadwolf. Reportedly, this is a tried and tested technique with EA; other teams have been asked to work on games to help quicken the pace of the release.

However, it appears Dragon Age: Dreadwolf is still far from being finished. Gary McKay, BioWare general manager said, “We continue to iterate and polish Dreadwolf, focusing on the things that matter most to our fans.” Although Dragon Age: Dreadwolf has had a difficult production with plenty of pauses and departures, Samantha Ryan, EA’s senior vice president stated it’s normal for a “complex game of this genre” to take a long time to build and polish.

Considering the rocky journey Dragon Age: Dreadwolf had already, fans are likely anxious to hear positive news and a release date. Hopefully, the return of Mark Darrah will help usher in more positive updates.
