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 while off yet.

Obviously, this begs the question: is the gameplay that was saw actually going to be representative of the final product? The demo was definitely heavily scripted at times, so we're left wondering if the actual game is going to look that detailed when it eventually launches next year.

What do you think of ANTHEM? Is this a downgrade story waiting to happen? Don't be too cynical in the comments section below.
