Bioware's Anthem Will Launch in Early 2019; New Battlefield Coming This Year

Bioware's Anthem Will Launch in Early 2019; New Battlefield Coming This Year

'It's not a delay, ' EA CFO Blake Jorgensen told the Wall Street Journal.

EA confirmed today that BioWare's blockbuster RPG Anthem will be delayed to 2019, confirming multiple reports that the multiplayer shooter would not make its release date for this year.

That's right, EA has confirmed that Anthem will not be released until 2019.

Though it may not be a "delay" in the most obvious sense of the word, initial reveal plans for Anthem did have the game set to release for the fall of this year. By any standard, that is a delay, even if fall 2018 to early 2019 is not a significant one.




Anthem was originally revealed at E3 past year.

It seemed curious for a developer like BioWare to take on such a project, but it reflected EA's move away from limited, single-player experiences to continuous multiplayer games that can be heavily monetized through downloadable content and microtransactions. The release window was mentioned to show how EA was spacing out its upcoming games to ensure each has an opportunity to shine.

That move also meant the closure of Visceral Studios, the developer behind the original incarnation of that game.

Last week rumors began to sprout up, hinting towards a possible delay of Bioware's third-person MMO, Anthem. Whether or not it will live up to the hype is still unknown, but the fact EA Games isn't rushing it out to the masses is a good sign. An official announcement detailing the next Battlefield is expected in the months to come.
