Mass Effect 5 and Dragon Age Dreadwolf fates confirmed following EA layoffs

Mass layoffs at EA have left the fate of several upcoming games up in the air, though it’s said Mass Effect 5 and Dragon Age Dreadwolf will survive for the time being.

EA reportedly aims to lay off around 11% of its workforce by March 2025, and joins several other gaming companies letting go of hundreds of developers and other staff members. For EA in particular, nearly 700 people have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, with multiple projects reportedly being cancelled in the process.

The first-person Star Wars game, that was rumoured to be a Mandalorian one, has been cancelled, and there were also fears Mass Effect 5 and Dragon Age Dreadwolf may have also faced the chopping block.

Fortunately, it seems both games have survived. It’s believed the next Dragon Age game will be the first to release, once again developed by BioWare, and will be followed by the next entry in the Mass Effect series.

This news was reported by IGN, who said it’s “learned that a team is still working in pre-production on the next Mass Effect, though BioWare's current focus remains on Dragon Age.” It's also believed EA has greenlit another game set in the Titanfall universe, though disappointingly it’s not Titanfall 3.

In other news, the company recently shared its plans for the future, which will apparently include plenty of free-to-play and live-service games. EA said the reason for this is because gamers actually want these type of games, a bold claim considering many live-service games, the most recent example being Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, quickly fizzle out due to a lack of content or poor optimisation.

Hopefully Dragon Age Dreadwolf and Mass Effect 5 will be your standard action-adventure games, and survive any future layoffs plaguing the game industry.
