BioWare today officially announced that their upcoming refresh of Anthem, also called Anthem Next, was ceasing. Development resources are being funneled to BioWare's other projects, including the next Dragon Age and Mass Effect titles, as well as helping out with updates to their MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Remember Anthem? Well, its first anniversary has come and gone, and it seems BioWare are ending their Icetide event along with dropping some patch notes.
In case you missed it, yesterday, Anthem-head Casey Hudson announced in a blog that the team was going to essentially overhaul the game top to bottom. I’m genuinely conflicted about this admittedly unsurprising confirmation from BioWare. On one hand, I don’t want BioWare to dump more resources into the objective failure that is Anthem. However, I do want to see the true fulfillment of that concept shown off to us at E3 2017. Let’s discuss.
A new blog from BioWare's Casey Hudson has shed light on the future of Anthem. In short, the game is set to receive a complete overhaul.
In a blog post, it appears BioWare have announced that Anthem will be ditching previously announced acts in favor of seasonal updates.
Anthem got its first significant update in some time this week with game update 1.3. The update adds a number of new things and significantly improves some others, but it’s not the “miracle patch” fans may be hoping for.
