EA says a small team working on Anthem “gives us the agility a larger one can’t afford”
When Anthem was first announced everyone was excited as it was going to join in the looter shooter genre that Destiny and The division have been the main go-to games. However, Anthem was supposed to compete with these games, though upon launch Anthem fell well short of what players were expecting. Though EA stated a while back that they would be overhauling Anthem and calling it Anthem 2.0, however, since that announcement ages back, we hadn’t received any information as to how it was going.
Until now that is as we now know that Anthem is being redesigned by an “incubation team” of 30 people, which is just the beginning of a larger process. This news comes from an official blog post over on Bioware’s website. In which BioWare Austin studio director Christian Dailey gave us an update as to what was happening with Anthem.
“We’re committed to this project,” said Dailey, who added that the Anthem team is “starting to validate our design hypotheses.” There are around 30 people working on Anthem now, which Dailey described as its “incubation team.”
“We are a small team… earning our way forward as we set out to hit our first major milestone goals. Spoiler — this is going to be a longer process.
“And yes, the team is small, but the whole point of this is to take our time and go back to the drawing board. And a small team gives us the agility a larger one can’t afford.”
Only time will tell if it will pay off for EA Bioware and hopefully, they can remake Anthem and bring it up to the game that players were hoping it would be.
