An aspect of BioWare’s latest intellectual property, Anthem, that can’t be argued – the visuals are stunning.

Instead of creating an entire world from scratch, the personnel working with studio director Casey Hudson mentions that it “will be built on Anthem’s codebase.” He goes on to quote a former employee who stated:
I think Anthem might be the kick in the butt that BioWare leadership needed to see that how you develop games has changed dearly. You can’t just start fresh and fumble your way forward until you find the fun. That doesn’t work anymore.”
It looks as though BioWare is turning to new strategies in terms of building up their existing properties, especially one as distinguished as Dragon Age.
