Maybe in this era of unpredictable development cycles, early access, and soft launches, the confirmation that a game will actually get a beta test is noteworthy. So in case you were, for whatever reason, doubting that BioWare’s upcoming multiplayer Anthem would leapfrog over beta and deprive you of a testing experience, worry no longer.
Game Director Jonathan Warner emerged on Twitter this week to stoke fans for the project and encourage them to be patient. “It’s been an intense couple of months,” he posted on September 26th. “The world continues to grow and develop.”
In response to players asking about beta testing and when they will see more of the game, Warner dropped a few tidbits. “Yeah we’ll have a beta,” he writes to one fan. Then, to another: “Remember, we are still a distance out. Too soon for details but will provide more when the time is right.”
