News | 'EA determines the future of Anthem this week'

Electronic Arts would decide this week whether Anthem will receive support in the future or stop the support.

Bloomberg reports this in a report. Developer BioWare has been in the business of “significantly reinventing” Anthem for quite some time after the game failed to achieve the intended success after launch in 2019. EA would decide internally this week whether BioWare can continue working on this revision, or whether support for the game will be discontinued entirely.

Last year, a small team within BioWare was put on reinventing Anthem. The team has since posted some regular updates on this process. This team would consist of about 30 people, according to Bloomberg’s report, but to fully implement the changes would require a larger team. It would at least be a tripling of manpower. That’s why EA would make a final decision this week.


News | Anthem now playable via EA Access

Anthem is now available via EA Access.

The subscription service on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 allows gamers to play various EA games for a fixed monthly fee without any further costs. Anthem is now a game of that, about six months after the game was launched.

When Anthem launched earlier this year, there were quite a few problems with the game. However, EA said this summer that they still have faith in the game and developer BioWare.

Next week, on September 19, Access members can also try out Fifa 20. This is a 10-hour trial version.
