According to Casey Hudson, the next Dragon Age is the game which the studio has initiated work on. Having that understood, by work he is referring to the thought process, which may span over years.
“[BioWare] do have people figuring out what the next Dragon Age will look like.”
Then talking about the world of Mass Effect, Dragon Age and now Anthem, he said that such act of creation involves a process that expands over the years. A lot of work is done in every aspect, to make it as brilliant as possible.
“It is amazing to have new IP that you’ve developed and that you own, because that’s part of the fun for us: having created Mass Effect, Dragon Age and now Anthem,” he said “These are worlds that we can think of many years in advance about where we want to take the franchise, the story, and things like that.”
