BioWare's Anthem to Release in March 2019

It's expected to launch in March 2019.

Looking ahead, EA plans to release entries in its FIFA, Madden, NBA Live, and National Hockey League series along with a new Battlefield and BioWare's Anthem during its 2019 fiscal year.

After the less than enthusiastic reception Bioware received with Mass Effect Andromeda, a lot of hopes are on its next game, Anthem, to be a return to form for the studio.

Bioware is slowly revealing their plans for Anthem.

Every dimension of this game will offer something entirely new for a wide audience of players-from a new universe with unique stories that BioWare is creating, to the cooperative gameplay, to the epic and lovely environment that constantly evolves around players. However, in a blog post, BioWare General Manager Casey Hudson wanted to elaborate on certain things players can expect.

"Later in the fiscal year, we will launch our stunning and ambitious new IP, Anthem".

As Gamespot noted, the way Wilson put it seems to suggest that he is not just referring to the early play access that is granted to EA/Origin Access subscribers, especially since that means that players would only be able to provide feedback from five days' worth of checking out the game. We also have teams envisioning future BioWare games, and they're designing approaches that are different from Anthem-including one that's very Dragon Age. Technical Director Brenon Holmes has also recently confirmed that Anthem graphics won't be a downgrade from the E3 2017 trailer, though it's unknown if the PS4 Pro and Xbox One variants of the game will feature significant enhancements beyond the other console editions. It's rumored that a third Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare title will be announced, and we're sure to see a new look at the publisher's upcoming sports games. A brand new idea combining the latest tech and a vision for something extraordinary.

Though Wilson stressed that Electronic Arts will continue to support traditional game sales as long as consumers want them, he expects the company to increasingly focus on live services and subscriptions in its games.
