In an initial report by Kotaku, it seems that the disappointing multiplayer action RPG, Anthem is not entirely a lost cause according to BioWare and parent company EA. Their sources report that the game is getting a massive overhaul, entitled either Anthem 2.0 or Anthem Next.
Their sources report that a majority of areas such as its mission structure, world and loot will all be changed due to consistent feedback and concern from their players. However, developers are still not sure how to go about implementing such changes.
There are multiple ways to revitalise the franchise. Although it’s not entirely clear at this point, it is possible that its updates should be released gradually or all at once. Or they could release it as a new game altogether.
One of the people working on the project said: “We spent a few months just tearing it down and figuring out what needed to change fundamentally (a lot). And we’ve been rebuilding for another few months since.”
There are also rumours that there is a Mass Effect game is in “very early development”. Apparently the new project is being led by Mike Gamble, project manager on Mass Effect 2 and producer on Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda.
On November 7, or N7 Day for fans of the beloved sci-fi RPG franchise, BioWare and Mass Effect fans celebrated the game and Gamble hinted at a new game with a tweet asking fans what they would want for the franchise in the future.
It seems that BioWare has a lot of big decisions to make in the near future and although there may be all these clues to a new Mass Effect instalment, we’re pretty sure it’s not going to be released before Dragon Age 4 which is coming out only after April 2022.
