Ass kissing and credit stealing to career advancement eventually leads to competency bankruptcy.


All the idea people have long since been driven out or moved on.

So the last guy to run Anthem? Saying it would get better? He left.

Anthem’s chief developer for live service — aka the whole reason the game was made, basically — has left the studio. It’s another sign that BioWare’s sci-fi, open-world big bet probably won’t be getting that familiar “OK, now it’s a good game” redemption story after a year’s worth of post-release support.

Chad Robertson announced via Twitter on Thursday that he would be leaving BioWare after 14 years with the company. As the live service director, Robertson had been the public face behind the promises that Anthem would be getting better, following a thud of a launch in February and major revisions to its content roadmap soon after.

So at first, it was leaked by a couple of people on twitter, but now the bigger sites are picking it up: Anthem is getting relaunched later this year.

https://www.gamerevolution.com/news...k-major-changes

https://blog.bioware.com/2020/02/10...te-february-10/

Key parts:

quote:
Over the last year, the team has worked hard to improve stability, performance and general quality of life while delivering three seasons of new content and features. We have also heard your feedback that Anthem needs a more satisfying loot experience, better long-term progression and a more fulfilling end game. So we recognize that there’s still more fundamental work to be done to bring out the full potential of the experience, and it will require a more substantial reinvention than an update or expansion. Over the coming months we will be focusing on a longer-term redesign of the experience, specifically working to reinvent the core gameplay loop with clear goals, motivating challenges and progression with meaningful rewards – while preserving the fun of flying and fighting in a vast science-fantasy setting. And to do that properly we’ll be doing something we’d like to have done more of the first time around – giving a focused team the time to test and iterate, focusing on gameplay first.


Shades of FFXIV there, it seems.

I only played a bit of the beta but the world looked cool and the combat seemed fun.

Ubisoft did the same with The Division. It did a complete re-think on most of the systems with 1.4. It seemed to work. However, the difference was Division had more active players at the time.

However, if the games rethink turns out a much better product and they release it on Game Pass....it could start something good.

Will be interesting to see how the rework goes. Another thing that makes this a bit of a different situation is that a new console generation is coming soon, probably before Anthem's rework is complete, so that makes me wonder what kind of strategy they will have to deal with the fact that many players who bought the game will have moved on to a new platform. I wonder if they will try to release this new Anthem as a new game, or if it will be a free update, and how the new console generation will play into that plan.

I hope they are able to get the game in a better state. It seemed like a cool premise - an mmo shooter with a good single player story. I hope one day they can realize that idea.

Reworks generally work out don't they for similar type games?

I assume the amount of money that was put into this game requires EA to make an effort to fix it. It probably only requires a small group of people to make these changes.

Yeah they've worked well in the past. But like I said, the situation with the next gen consoles coming out so soon might throw a wrench into that.

Them reworking it isn't good news IMO. I really just want Anthem to die so this team can get back to Mass Effect.

I read that the team reworking it isn't the main team, but Bioware Austin, which makes sense since they have experience in the online RPG genre already by running SWTOR.

The Edmonton team is doing Dragon Age 4.

I don't think we will see another Mass Effect until a very long time from now.
