Anthem Next Canceled. BioWare Focuses on Other Projects

Anthem Next will not see the light of day. BioWare confirmed the end of work on the update that was supposed to breath new life into Anthem.

Anthem players were still waiting for news on the game's future after the alleged quality check by Electronic Arts. Unfortunately, we have bad news for them. Jason Schreier from Bloomberg reports that the publisher has suspended work on an update known as Anthem Next. The information was confirmed by Christian Dailey, executive producer at BioWare Austin, although he assured that the game's servers will not stop working and the team will continue to oversee them.

The fate of Anthem is one of those stories where disappointment appears at every turn. Starting with its debut and mixed reviews, through meager financial results, and ending with de facto complete oblivion, BioWare's work didn't, even for a moment, live up to its spectacular marketing campaign. Anthem Next (sometimes also called Anthem 2.0) was supposed to be a second chance for the game. The developers were planning a thorough overhaul of the game's core systems and new pirate content, among other things. But would it have changed Anthem's fate? We'll never know the answer to that question.
