In a new BioWare blog post penned by general manager Casey Hudson, a little light is perhaps shed on ANTHEM, the studio's upcoming sci-fi title. In the post, Hudson writes about his return to the company and "refocusing BioWare's mission" after missteps with the disappointing Mass Effect: Andromeda. "We need to delight players with new...
"And we won't"
Following a management reshuffle over at EA, newly assigned chief design officer Patrick Söderlund has opened up about the mistakes that the company made with Star Wars Battlefront 2 in an interview with The Verge. Söderlund admits that the sequel's progression system was handled poorly at launch, with...
Drew Karpyshyn, best known for his role as lead writer on the brilliant Mass Effect 2, has left developer BioWare for the second time. Karpyshyn first made his way out of the company back before the release of Mass Effect 3, but he returned last year to help out with ANTHEM. On his official site
Battlefield due out in October
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...
Hopefully it works out
Let's not beat around the bush: BioWare's been trying to navigate an increasingly slippery slope for a good few years now. Once one of the very best role-playing game studios in the world, the Canadian company has had it rough in recent times, with the likes of Mass Effect: Andromeda failing to propel the beloved...
Why wouldn't it?
ANTHEM, BioWare's big budget third-person shooter role-playing thing, will be getting a beta at some point before launch. The game's still a while away yet -- it's currently got a vague Fall 2018 release window -- but with projects like this, the developer is always going to be looking to the future and planning things out well in...
BioWare breaks sad news
Corey Gaspur, well known for his design work on Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and Dragon Age: Origins among other games, has passed away. BioWare shared the sad news of his passing on its official blog, which also mentions that Gaspur was working on the developer's upcoming sci-fi project, ANTHEM, as lead designer...
The gang's back together
Following on from the recent news that Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead writer Drew Karpyshyn is helping to craft ANTHEM, BioWare has revealed that Mass Effect trilogy director Casey Hudson is returning to the developer after going off and doing his own thing for the last three years or so. Like Karpyshyn, Hudson will be...
The horror! The horror
Sony has uploaded an ANTHEM trailer to its YouTube channel featuring the same gameplay footage that was showcased at Microsoft’s E3 briefing last month – but with PlayStation button prompts overlaid. Before anyone freaks out: EA will have doctored this footage in order for it to feature on the official PlayStation...
Mass Effect 1 and 2 lead writer is working on it
We just got a bit more hyped for ANTHEM - the gritty sci-fi third person shooter that was revealed at EA's showcase. Why? Well, it turns out that Drew Karpyshyn's working on it. Karpyshyn was lead writer on both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, and he also wrote the Mass Effect expanded universe novels...
Nope, not spring
Oh, so it turns out that ANTHEM is farther away than we initially thought. The sci-fi shooter from BioWare was shown off during Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference a few hours ago, and based on what we saw, the project looked reasonably far along. However, Business Wire has the game pegged for a fall 2018 release, so it's a...
Mech it happen
BioWare went ahead with a full gameplay demo of ANTHEM at Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference, and it looks pretty cool. There's a definite Destiny vibe here, with the science fiction and the shooting and the co-op and the loot, but again, it looks promising. You can check out the footage above. What do you make of ANTHEM? Suit up...
BioWare's brand new intellectual property, ANTHEM, was revealed yesterday during EA's totally-not-E3 press conference. All we got was a very brief teaser trailer, so admittedly we don't have much to say about the project just yet, but what we do know is that it's going to be blown open at Microsoft's show tonight. The fact...
The makers of Mass Effect are back
BioWare's new property was revealed earlier at EA's totally-not-E3 showcase via a brief teaser trailer. The game's called ANTHEM, and it appears to be some sort of gritty sci-fi title. It uses the Frostbite engine, and we'll be seeing more of it tomorrow at Microsoft's press conference. Got any first...
