We had not talked about Anthem for a long time, the Triple-A title that will always be remembered as one of the great failures of BioWare and Electronic Arts, remembering that this game came looking great but lacked content.
As if the lack of content was no longer enough, a large number of bugs, microtransactions, the accusations of former BioWare developers indicating that almost all the content shown at E3 was a lie, then came the departure of the main producer, eliminating the roadmap and the last information was that the company was preparing to completely redesign the game, and yes, I have had to read all the news that I have put on the game, and I have left many headlines in the pipeline, and that is when a specific game has more than 130 news on our website, it is clear that it has been surrounded by criticism.
The latest news is not that it is good either, and that is that BioWare has given the news about Anthem 2.0, the redesign of the game, where they indicate that they have just started to ‘hatch’ ideas and that fixing the game will be a ” long process “. so it is already assumed that this redesign will not come until next year.
“The Anthem incubation team has started and we are beginning to validate our design hypotheses. Incubation is a term we use internally. It means that we are going back and experimenting/prototyping to improve the areas where we think we fall short and to take advantage of everything you like about Anthem today.
We are a small team, in our 30s, earning our way forward as we aim to achieve our first major goals. Spoiler – this is going to be a longer process. And yes, the team is small, but the goal of this is to take our time and get back to the drawing board. And a small team gives us the agility that a bigger one cannot afford.
We want to include them as we go along and be open and honest about where we are and what the expectations are where we are going. The reality is that they will see things that look amazing but end up on the courtroom floor or things they might think suck and feel like we are spending too much time, but in the spirit of experimentation, this is all fine. We really want to provide you with as much transparency as we can because of your passion and interest in the Anthem. But, with that comes seeing how the sausage is made, which by the way is not always pretty. “
