Anthem “Has To Be Complete From Day One,” Says Producer


As many of you already know, Anthem will be the next big IP from BioWare. With a huge story reveal coming out of the recent PAX West event, many fans are becoming more excited for the upcoming title. That said, some people still have their reservations regarding the game, as it comes after the less than stellar release of Mass Effect: Andromeda.

That said, many concerns for Anthem surround the possibility of the game not being complete when it launches next year. Producer Mark Darrah, however, aims to put fans at ease. During a recent interview with USgamer, Darrah expressed his desire for the game to be finished from day one and having the content required to keep players around and ensure they’ll keep coming back for more.

“Yeah and you know one of the things that I think has been a relatively recent lesson in the live-service space is that before last year I think you saw games coming out that were relatively incomplete,” he said. “[Games] that then sort of built up and built their fan base over time and grew and got bigger. And I think in the last year you’ve seen a couple of games launch that were in that same kind of space that you would’ve thought, ‘Okay this should be fine’ that then didn’t work out.”

“People came in and they went, ‘there’s not enough here’ and they left,” Darrah continued. “So, I think it’s partially because the competition in the space has gotten harder people are less willing to just kind of hang out and hope that stuff is going to come along. There are other things for them to do. So, I think for me a big lesson has been that… it’s that you need to have enough on the first day so that there’s a reason to stay. And when more is coming then that’s great. That’s amazing. But I’m not just going to hang out and wait for the game to become complete. It has to be complete from day one.”

No matter the case, it would appear that BioWare is committed to providing players with a solid experience when Anthem arrives on February 22, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
