Is it too late for Anthem to capture the hearts of online shooter fans? BioWare doesn’t think so. According to Kotaku’s sources, the developer is planning a complete overhaul of the game, which could be dubbed “Anthem 2.0” or “Anthem Next.” One person on the project claims that BioWare has already spent months tearing the game down and figuring out what to change: “…we’ve been rebuilding for another few months since.”
The one thing that’s for sure is that BioWare has not abandoned Anthem, despite recent breathless declarations that the game is dead. (There are few better ways to get views on YouTube than declaring Anthem to be dead.) Right now, dozens if not hundreds of developers at both of BioWare’s offices—in Austin, Texas and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada—are quietly working on plans to overhaul the game.
