Major Anthem update may give game a new lease on life

Major Anthem update may give game a new lease on life

At this point, it's safe to say that Anthem wasn't the success BioWare was looking for. The game floundered upon release, leading BioWare to eventually delay its content roadmap for the game to fix the issues players were complaining about. We haven't heard much from Anthem in recent months, and while that may lead you to believe that Anthem is more or less dead, a big report today says that isn't the case.
