was ultimately disappointing, failing to live to its promise of a co-op persistent world and a rich story to get immersed in. As per our review from 2019
we called it disjointed. Since its release BioWare has been working to fix the issues and build a cohesive experience in what has been dubbed Anthem 2.0. Today, as part of a new report over at Bloomberg
, this effort has now reached a critical milestone.
In that the team working on Anthem at BioWare is now at the point where it needs more resources to deliver the new version of the game. As per the report EA will decide whether to expand the team (totaling around 30 people) or pull the plug. Based on the issues with the game at launch no doubt whatever is planned and in the works would require an almost complete rebuild or remake -- and money to make happen.
Another factor would be relevance, with Anthem coming and going in the early parts of 2019 you have to wonder if people would be willing to reinvest time in replaying similar story beats -- not to mention keep playing as Anthem was positioned as a Destiny-style action-RPG live service.
