Regarding “Anthem” many questions remain open, but one thing seems certain: Electronic Arts and Bioware plan long-term support. A ten-year journey is planned for the players.
Electronic Arts used their own E3 press conference to present the promising action game “Anthem”, which is currently being developed by Bioware. The title reminds a little of “Destiny” and also the plans regarding the long-term support go in a similar direction. In a recent interview, the publisher even spoke of a ten-year journey, which is about to be launched after the launch of the title.
In the words of Executive VP Patrick Soderlund, “Anthem is a social game where you go on your quest for quests and journeys with your friends, we have been working on this game for almost four years, and as soon as it appears next year, think I have a ten-year journey ahead of us. ”
In the case of “Destiny” a few years ago, however, a ten-year plan was discussed, which was later denied. In the context of a legal dispute between the former Bungie composer Marty O’Donnel and the studio, this statement oozed through. With “Destiny 2” the sequel will be released this year.
Whether you “Anthem” for ten years to employ or already possible Sequels in this timetable included, remains to be seen. At least the first part will come in the autumn 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on the market.
