"It's not a delay", he says. For some reason EA doesn't reveal its user figures for this title, despite them being revealed to PCGamesInsider.biz during an interview a year ago and EA PR trying to get us to remove them from story. The last Battlefield title took the series to World War I and received quite a bit of acclaim from fans who welcomed the different - yet oddly familiar - setting.
Do you think EA is making the right choice moving back the date of Anthem?
Instead of the original release window of sometime at the end of this year, EA officially confirmed that Anthem will release in Q1 2019, or Q4 of its 2019 fiscal year. Kind of ironic coming from the company that chose to release Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 in the same month, just mere weeks before the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Now, EA has confirmed that the game won't launch until next year, but this isn't a delay, it's a scheduling matter, apparently.
EA has been in the news a lot lately, because of rumours that Microsoft is considering buying them out, but today they, and many other publishers, released their ordinary third quarter financial results.
A Kotaku report citing three people close to the development of Anthem said the team was facing vast pressure following the failure of Mass Effect: Andromeda and the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 loot box controversy. Battlefield 5? Bad Company 3? EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen insisted that this is "not a delay", and that this is just the process of trying to create a story.
Just like Battlefield 1, we see absolutely no reason for Battlefield 2 to come to the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, alongside the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
