Following a report by Kotaku last week, EA's Blake Jorgensen confirmed that Anthem, a new IP being developed by Bioware, has been delayed. In a manner of speaking.
The reason given for the amended date is that a new Battlefield title is coming in October and the company feel that Anthem would fare better if it "came out in a quieter quarter."
EA surprised many by releasing Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 within a month of each other. This could be a case of them learning from their mistakes.
So there you have it. Anthem isn't delayed, it's just launching at a later date than was initially planned.
Do you think Anthem will benefit from being released in a quieter period? Let us know below or over in the forums.
