it will require a more substantial reinvention than an update or expansion.
we will be focusing on a longer-term redesign of the experience
we’ll be doing something we’d like to have done more of the first time around – giving a focused team the time to test and iterate, focusing on gameplay first.
So EA greenlit a sequel? I'm a little surprised actually.
In its first update on the state of Anthem in three months, BioWare says the game’s overhaul is “going to be a longer process.”
“The Anthem incubation team has kicked off and we are starting to validate our design hypotheses,” wrote BioWare Austin studio director, Christian Dailey. “Incubation is a term we use internally—it essentially means we are going back and experimenting/prototyping to improve on the areas where we believe we fell short and to leverage everything that you love currently about Anthem.”
Dailey went on to confirm that approximately 30 people are currently working on Anthem as part of this incubation team and that it’s going to take some time. “And yes, the team is small but the whole point of this is to take our time and go back to the drawing board,” he wrote. “And a small team gives us the agility a larger one can’t afford.”
I remember loving the game in the beta. Held off the full game because of money going elsewhere and I'm so glad I did because all the real issues came out during it's life cycle.
I will be one of those eager to jump back in with this 2.0 update. The combat/flight/core mechanics were a good set of building blocks.
If the game is good, people will definitely go back. FFXIV and No Man's Sky say hi.
Doubtful. Both those games didn’t have a complete drop-off of ALL its players one month post launch. And neither of those two had players wait MORE THAN 2 YEARS for a content drop.
Anthem coming back is kinda impossible but ... it looks like they’re gonna try in some form.
I still expect it to be a full priced relaunch and remake of sorts for next gen tho.
I doubt they will charge for the update, its going to be hard enough getting players back even if it was free.i look forward to seeing what they do, since i really loved the gameplay, better ironman than avengers
but man when are we expecting this new update? is taking ages, surely may aswell just make it a sequel (unless its a free update, which would be nice but would make no financial sense)
