IN A NUTSHELL:
- Anthem did not meet the publisher's expectations;
- Since the game's premiere, players have spent 150 million hours in this production;
- The development team is focused on patching and creating new content;
- EA is happy with the success of Firestorm, Battlefield V's battle royale mode.
During yesterday's conversation with investors, representatives of Electronic Arts confirmed what we suspected for a long time - Bioware's online shooter Anthem, plagued by numerous issues since launch, did not meet the expectations of the publisher. The information appeared in a tweet by senior Niko Partners analyst, Daniel Ahmad.
It is worth noting that the title is still very popular - the players have spent over 150 million hours in it since its launch (although, as we know, the user base has been constantly shrinking in recent weeks). It should also be emphasized that a weaker launch does not mean that EA will abandon Anthem - the representatives of the company assure that the development team is working hard on patches and new content. By the way, we also learned that Battlefield V's battle royale mode - Firestorm was a great success. Its premiere was the biggest event in the history of the series.
Anthem made its debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 22, this year, and was coldly received by critics. The online shooter Battlefield V, on the other hand, has been available on the same platforms since November 20, 2018. The free Firestorm DLC had its premiere on March 25.
