Bioware boss Casey Hudson confirmed that a pretty big team is still working on Anthem, despite the poor launch. Hudson said that the team knows players are not happy with Anthem but they are committed to making it better in the future.
A lot of people expected that Bioware will be the one to deliver the near-perfect looter shooter after many games in the last few years didn't quite manage to create the winning formula. However, Anthem has been nothing but a disappointment to many players who were eagerly awaiting its arrival ever since Bioware and EA revealed the game back at E3 2017.
Shortly after the launch, Bioware went totally silent and no one knew what the future holds for Anthem. There were rumours that the game is shutting down but it looks like the studio are not giving up just yet.
In the latest post on Bioware's Blog, the studio boss Casey Hudson talked about what Bioware have been up to in the last couple of weeks. He mentioned the recently released Cataclysm events in Anthem, which was originally planned to launch a long time ago and also talked about what's next for the game.
According to Hudson, Bioware still have a big team working on Anthem and they know there's a long road ahead of them before Anthem becomes what players expected once they decided to purchase it.
"We have a big team working on Anthem in both Austin and Edmonton, and while it’s been great to see the community response to Cataclysm, I know there’s a lot more work to do to bring out the full potential of the game," Hudson said.
Furthermore, Bioware boss made it clear that the team still believe in Anthem and have plans for more fundamental improvements but unfortunately, none of those are imminent.
"While the team works towards the longer-term vision of the game, they will also continue to deliver updates to features and content. I believe in Anthem and would love to see its world grow, evolve, and thrive for years to come," Hudson concluded.
Hudson also talked up SWTOR’s Onslaught expansion and teased the upcoming new entry in the Dragon Age franchise. You can read the full post on Bioware's blog.
