"I believe in Anthem
and would love to see its world grow, evolve, and thrive for years to come", states BioWare
head Casey Hudson in a new post
. Noting that Anthem
is still being worked on by a big team across BioWare's Austin and Edmonton studios. By now you've probably forgotten about the game, but recently the long-awaited Cataclysm update dropped with new content and events.
Still, by all accounts it wasn't all that much in terms of what Anthem needs to improve. Basically a rebuild from the ground up. With Casey adding, "There’s a lot more work to do to bring out the full potential of the game." Indeed.
In other, and well, more interesting news it that BioWare has moved into new state of the art facilities in Edmonton, and that a large team is deep into pre-production on a new game. One that with the hint the Dread Wolf rises
will surely be the next game in the Dragon Age
franchise. So, for those wondering if BioWare's future was in trouble after the lukewarm response of Anthem, it definitely sounds like there's at least one more AAA game to come.
After the one-two disappointments of Mass Effect Andromeda and Anthem - well, it needs to be good.
