As reports had more or less already revealed, BioWare’s ambitious ANTHEM has been delayed until early 2019, with a new Battlefield game taking its Fall 2018 spot. There’s no further information on that Battlefield game, but you can probably expect guns, explosions, and collapsing buildings. It's due out in October.

As for ANTHEM, executive Blake Jorgensen told the Wall Street Journal that this is not a delay – despite, y’know, the title literally being announced for Fall 2018 at E3 last year. “People are trying to create a story,” he said. Sure, Jan.gif.

The word on the street is that BioWare’s betting the bank on ANTHEM, so we wish it luck as it polishes up the project. In other unrelated news, the recently acquired Respawn Entertainment’s in-development Star Wars title is pegged to release sometime between April 2019 and March 2020.
