Bloomberg reports that EA will decide the future of Anthem later this week. The meeting will discuss the possibilities of reviving the game that had a failed launch due to technical issues and a lack of promised content.
Anthem Next is a 30 person team in an attempt to get the sci-fi shooter off the ground. The overhaul will need to expand the player base to live on delivering content. If all goes well, then the AAA GaaS by Bioware will grow like other games in the genre like Bungie’s Destiny or Crystal Dynamics’ Avengers.
We are about two years after the release of Anthem, which its review scores currently average a score of 59 across all platforms on Metacritic. Last year the plan to revamp it ignited but was said to be ways away before everything can work out. The developers had a lot to do as the current state was disastrous.
The studio has had its fair share of troubles with not only its latest release but the one before it, Mass Effect: Andromeda. Maybe with the upcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a remaster of the original trilogy, and the next Dragon Age, then it can redeem itself as a studio without as significant of developmental issues or reception from critics and fans.
