BioWare And EA “Conservative” About Anthem’s Debut, Release Date Planned For Next Year
There’s not a single doubt that a substantial amount of pressure weight heavily on both BioWare and Electronic Arts to do well with the upcoming science fiction video game title, Anthem. After the mixed reception of Mass Effect: Andromeda, both companies have decided focused all their efforts to make Anthem the best “unlike anything you’ve played“. Boasting live features with a focus on story- and character-centric gameplay. Despite the anticipation for their latest project, EA’s chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen revealed their “conservative” approach.
Revealing a release month for Anthem in March 2019, Jorgensen stated that the “game will be shipped in the last quarter of the year, and in the last month of that quarter”. That implies several different ideas about EA’s approach, but EA doesn’t offer any official details beyond that. Perhaps they’re intent on pushing the release as far as possible to fine-tune minute details and make sure each feature is just right before critics can sink their teeth into it. Regardless, Jorgensen believes it will be an “extremely unique” game:
Since [Anthem] is new IP, we’re being conservative in how we’re thinking about it. We’re very excited about the game. It’s extremely unique, and I think players are going to really enjoy playing it, but we’re careful not to put too large of a forecast in there.”
Taking into consideration the fact that BioWare’s Anthem is a brand new intellectual property to grace the industry, it makes complete sense to be more cautious in regards to its debut. Since E3 2017, little else was revealed in terms of storyline, gameplay, and various other features, but the team is hard at work in preparing a gameplay showcase for this year. So stand ready!
