Forums - Gaming Discussion - It's do or die time for Bioware's Anthem Next | Update: Development shuts down

Update: 

Original Story

Let's see what happens with it. Anthem will basically either have a chance of coming back strong like FF14: A Realm Reborn, or it will be cancelled with Bioware Austin moving on to new projects.

Can't resurrect the dead. FFXIV had an active player base before the re haul, this is just well.. dead.

EA should just let it go and put these people on the new Mass Effect. Anthem was DOA and there's no need to put any more resources in it.

Yeah, I'd rather see the Anthem team at Bioware Austin being put to work assisting the new Mass Effect team at Bioware Edmonton. 



Yeah, Anthem was not successful and going any further would be total waste of resources and talent. Say what you want about ME: Andromeda, at least it was a decent game. Shame EA pulled the plug on the DLC's and left ME on hiatus for so long.



Ever Quest II is more alive online than this POS. Let it remain dead where it deserves. Don't revive it as garbage like this needs to die more often to teach AAA publishers. EA is the kind of publisher I can see starting to charge microtransactions just to get simple updates/patches for games soon.

Incubation mode? Looking at Anthem I think they ment hibernation mode.



Ride The Chariot

I sunk over 100 hours in Anthem, thought it had really fun combat and navigation but I don't really have plans to ever return so I hope they decide on a new project.



I thought this game had a ton of potential. But EA is gona do what EA is gona do. Had this game kust had a single player offline mode I do believe all the technical problems would be gone. Content is something that can be good after time. But the mxt issue is something EA will never get right.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I remember when the game was announced it looked incredible and I truly belied with BioWare at the helm it would not disappoint. I had bought Destiny prior though and that made me hold off on purchasing the game out of the gate.

Glad I did.

They should just take the work they have done and completely rebrand it. Nothing wrong with the shared world concept, just learn from the mistakes and do it right like it really seems Bungie have with Destiny 2.



Always sad to see devs of popular game franchises having to work on new trash nobody has asked for which will inevitably fail and waste so much time and resources.
