BioWare's Anthem Release Month Revealed in EA Investor Call

BioWare's Anthem Release Month Revealed in EA Investor Call

Of course, this leaves BioWare no more than 10 months to wrap up development and polish the game.

In a prepared statement, EA's Andrew Wilson hinted that players would be able to get their hands on the game through some sort of extended beta or Early Access campaign. "This new game will advance the state of the art for the franchise, while still delivering the signature gameplay and Battlefield moments that have captivated and grown our global community".

"Anthem is a fundamentally social experience and will open new ways for fans to join the community and play early, enabling us to shape and refine the game with their input and feedback".

That's March in case you wondered, which means that the game will be hitting shelves just in time to contribute to EA's current financial year, presumably by making a ton of cash. We had previously guessed this March window when EA officially pushed Anthem back to next year, but this provides confirmation of the release month for the title.

EA is a "learning company" after all.

During their most recent financial earnings call, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen mentioned a concrete release window for Anthem. "And our games must be created to continue delivering new stories and experiences, in an ongoing relationship with players in the worlds we're evolving together". A brand new idea combining the latest tech and a vision for something extraordinary. "It is fast, dangerous, handsome and unexpected", EA's Patrick Soderlund said at EA Play in June.

Now, one of the most anticipated AAA titles of the year, the new release of Battlefield, will be ready for the holiday season as EA confirmed that the DICE game will be released in the third quarter of the fiscal year, or at some point between October 1 and December 31.

During the investor call, EA said that they were very excited about releasing a new IP. "To accommodate that, we are moving the launch date for this project into FY19".
