Dragon Age Netflix TV Series is reportedly in the works.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record with all these video game adaptations on Netflix that are going on, we’re here to announce that another video game adaptation is in active development.
Dragon Age Netflix TV Series is a boom.
Netflix is reportedly planning to launch a new TV series based on BioWare’s top-rated Dragon Age game franchise. However, this announcement has not come from the source itself. Furthermore, neither Netflix nor BioWare have confirmed or denied these claims.
Instead, this news comes from the site Giant Freakin Robot. The outlet published a report in which they have claimed that they have access to a credible and trusted exclusive source, which may indicate that the Dragon Age TV adaptation rumors are true.
The Witcher happens to exceed the realms of popularity, ranking as one of Netflix’s most-streamed series ever. Therefore, the live-action approach to an adaptation has been quite sought out. It seems to be the most likely route for the upcoming Dragon Age series, especially given that this style has allotted Netflix even more credibility and favorability.
However, the Dragon Age game franchise is heavily rooted and derived from fantasy elements. As fans know, Dragon Age is set in the magical world of Theda, in which humans, dwarfs, and elves roam and co-habitat amongst one another.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a true game narrative without a little good vs. evil. The Dragon Age game is centered around a crew of mythological and noble fighters whose task is to defeat the villainous Blight. The Blight actually refers to an event that takes place every few hundred years, in which the darkspawn return to Theda to wreak havoc and disruption on civilization. Many fans are concluding that Blight’s return will most likely be the start and introduction of the series.
With the addition of Dragon Age, Netflix seems to be strategically seeking out the gaming market as a way to straddle the line of entertainment. The streaming platform seems to be adamant about bridging the gap between gamers and TV. They intend to provide gamers the high of fantasy, even when they wish to take a break from actual gaming. Although the details of Dragon Age have yet to come out of the shadows, fans can look forward to accessing the world of Theda and its mystic creatures in more ways than just one.
The Bottom Line
The report comes the way of Giant Freakin Robot, and unfortunately, it’s light on details, but it does claim the series will be based on the first game, at least loosely and at first. And this is it. That’s all the report relays. There’s no word of how deep in pre-production the show is or when it will be announced. Of course, there’s a chance it could be either revealed or released alongside Dragon Age 4, which doesn’t have an official release date or release window but is reportedly dropping sometime in 2023.
All of that said, take everything here with a grain of salt. While the source in question has proven reliable in the past, they aren’t bulletproof like other industry sources. Not only is everything here unofficial, but more importantly, it’s subject to change.
At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties have commented on this report. We don’t expect this to change, but we will be sure to update the article accordingly if it does.
