BioWare's upcoming co-operative action-RPG Anthem will be released in March 2019 in order to strengthen EA'a current fiscal year, as reported by Eurogamer. This information comes from EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen who said as much during a recent financial call with analysts. From the looks of it, Jorgensen seems cautiously optimistic about Anthem's prospects. A couple of select quotes:
Interestingly, Jorgensen said EA was "being conservative" when it comes to Anthem's potential success - for a few reasons. One, it's a new intellectual property. Two, because Anthem comes out right at the end of EA's financial year, the company will probably have limited restocking of the game, "even if it's extremely successful".
"We're very excited about the game," Jorgensen added. "It's extremely unique, and I think players are going to really enjoy playing it, but we're careful not to put too large of a forecast in there. And clearly, it will impact this year as well as next year as we not only continue to sell more into the next year but start rolling out the live services associated with that game."
