While three major developers of Anthem has left the game behind, BioWare stays by its game that launched in February.
Jonathan Warner (director), Michael Gamble (producer), and Mark Darrah (executive producer) have swapped focus to Dragon Age 4. Gamble wrote the following on Twitter: „We aren’t working on Dragon Age 3. We aren’t working on Dragon Age 5. I guess that’s that.” He then added that Ben Irving (the other producer) and Chad Roberts (the head of live services…) continue to work on the game.
„We remain 100% committed to Anthem and look forward to showing players the new content we are working on. We want to make sure we aren’t overpromising, so our updates on what’s coming in the game will be focused when we have things near completion. Along with Ben and I, we’ve got a big team between Austin and Edmonton focused and motivated for improving the game. We appreciate your support and for being on this journey with us,” Robertson wrote on Twitter.
Also, Gamble expressed that the „support and commitment to Anthem has not changed.”
„A lesson we have learned is we have been talking about things too early. There are so many factors that can cause us to pivot on our plans–whether it’s bugs & stability issues, player feedback, or complications with a feature that require us to take more time to deliver it. Our goal is to tell you about new content and features once the work is closer to being done. We believe in Anthem. We believe the game will be great, but we recognize getting there will take a lot of hard work. We want to do that work and we want you all to join us on the journey to get there,” BioWare wrote recently on Reddit when all major content has been delayed to improve the game.
So, Anthem needs time, and a few people have swapped over to work on Dragon Age 4, which is reasonable, but since its development has been rebooted, we are slightly afraid of what it will be…
