EA’s been talking a big game with its recent financial results, confirming what we’d all suspected - a new Battlefield game is due to launch within the next fiscal year. FY2019 runs from April 1st, 2018, through to March 31st, 2019.
EA and BioWare are planning to pull a Destiny with Anthem, revealing a 10-year plan for the co-op action game going forward. Talking to Microsoft’s Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb, Patrick Soderlund of EA said that development on Anthem had been ongoing for four years, and that day one was the beginning of a 10-year journey for the game. Let’s hope that doesn’t mean a series of overpriced, content light expansion packs and a sequel three years down the line.
Via the absolute briefest of snippets, EA also revealed BioWare’s first new title in a post-Mass Effect Andromeda world. Previously known as Project Dylan, Anthem is a co-operative sci-fi shooter set in a primeval world.
