Bioware’s New IP Anthem Officially Delayed To 2019

Bioware has officially confirmed that their new online Multiplayer focused 3rd person shooter Anthem will be delayed until sometime early 2019.

Anthem, the newest IP from the main team at Bioware which was announced at E3 2017 has been officially delayed into early 2019. It was rumored last week by Kotaku, and has now been confirmed.

It’s unclear just what the reason is, however many speculate that it has much to do with the recent industry backlash on EA’s other game Battlefront II, and Microtransactions as a whole.

The game was shaping up to be a Destiny-esque style game to offer up some competition in the genre of persistent online shooters. Not too much was known, but we did have some details about the game a while back, and the game was looking positively gorgeous. Many are worried about the game as well due to “Bioware’s” other recent game, Mass Effect: Andromeda. Well, I’m happy to tell you that the team behind ME:A is not the same team that made the original ME trilogy, and is not the same team making Anthem. So rest assured Anthem is in good hands.

Oddly enough, Blake Jorgensen at EA said, “It’s not a delay.” However, the game was originally pegged as a fiscal 2019 release, which meant it could release anywhere from March of this year to February of next. So while not “technically” a delay, for all intents and purposes, this is a delay.

It’s also not clear if this delay will affect the confirmed Beta dates, but we’ll be sure to let you know more as it unfolds. We’ll likely be seeing more of the game this E3 and at other conventions. So stay tuned.
