BioWare’s latest shooter game Anthem has not even been released yet but fans are already worried about the game’s future and it seems that BioWare has given it some thought too.
As Anthem is a live-service game and the developers have promised to support it for 10 years, fans have been wondering if they will be able to pick up where they left on when they start on a next-generation console and the answer seems to be yes.
In a Twitter Q&A session, a fan posed the question of whether they will be able to carry over their save files to their next-generation consoles, to which BioWare’s Head of Live Service Chad Robertson replied with a simple “Always…”

While Robertson may have just been talking about the possibility for such a thing happening, without further clarification it does seem that players will indeed be able to port their progress over to their new consoles when they decide to make the switch.
While the ability to carry over progress to newer consoles is not anything new, having been done to titles on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, having this confirmation is still a piece of welcome news to players as it will mean that their hours of progress will not be wasted when they move to a newer console.
Anthem will be released February 22 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
