And while Bioware has since tried to walk it back, it's pretty much come out that Dragon Age 4 is in the pipeline. Also, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been pushed back to spring 2018, but they gave us some pretty screenshots to make up for it.
I hate that I'm kind of relieved that there's been less terrible behavior than I anticipated, but there hasn't been none.

According to his widow, Cornell told her over the phone that he thought he had overdone it with the antidepressants and taken a couple of Ativan too many that night. That explains a lot. Ativan isn't an antidepressant, it's a sedative used as antianxiety medication. As a person with depression and anxiety issues, I have a prescription for both, and even when I'm having a depressive episode, at a time when I am making terrible decisions, I know enough that Ativan is the absolute last thing I should be putting in my system, as it's notorious for increasing the likelihood of suicidal behavior.
