Posting a word-for-word guess on the way in which Dragon Age 4 will be revealed.

*Casey Hudson's voice*

"At BioWare, we have always prided ourselves on innovating quality storytelling."

*concept art of the Hinterlands, literally drawn in 2012 as early artwork for Inquisition*

"We craft characters to care about within realms which invite millions of players around the world to explore."

*several overly-organized desks with trophies earned for previous titles, only one of which involving Dragon Age*

"With increases in technology come bold new frontiers to ply our trade, allowing us to revisit our rich history of games franchises."

*Mass Effect galaxy theme begins to play, inciting thousands of internet posts incorrectly hyping the return of Commander Shepard*

"And although it will be awhile before we invite our players to return to those realms, we're humbled to announce our next great adventure: Dragon Age 4."

*concept art of a dragon; overhead shot of dozens of employees working on last-minute revisions for Anthem*

"Join us in our newest journeys in the years to come."

*voiceover ends; text appears on the screen announcing the launch of Dragon Age 4's official website circa late 2019*

Nice. Looking forward to tonight. This then Smash right after.

I predict RDR2 to get GOTY and GoW to get Best Direction. Both games to get major wins.

Don't forget an exorbitant amount of fancy office decor footage.

Also, I'm a member of the new, unofficial BSN boards and I don't have it in me to tell the community there not to dismiss the "DA4 is at least three years away" statements as baseless rumors to be ridiculed, which is what they've been doing.

Anything that Jason Schreier effectively confirms here is blatantly true in my book.

I'll, uh, just... let folks dream for now, I guess. x.x

From an italian forum that has leaked Far Cry New Dawn 24 hours before the announcement.
The same guy has said that Borderlands 3 will be really revealed tonight.
Please be true! Just finally get it over with and officially announce it. I'm sure release will be quite far away anyway.

Best Moment: Josef Fares

If that doesn't win, I will have lost all hope in this Award Show
Oh man that was awesome last year. Hoping there will be something like that again. That truly made it extra great.

oh, i used to hang out there--got kinda fed up of the lax moderation after a while, though - seriously, that they didn't ban the guy with the jawline chart is... ugh - so i pretty much haven't been back since just before andromeda came out.

seems like the sorta place where people'd be all like, 'bleh, kotaku?! fake news!', anyway. every freakin' time with jason's stuff: he posts some news people don't wanna hear, they ignore his track record and credentials and convince themselves it can't possibly be true - potentially with a side of throwing harassment at him on twitter - and then, well, it always ends the same way.

in any case, i'm glad we're getting a teaser, even if it'll be brief--it still feels like, i dunno, reassurance that the game'll happen someday.
