Man, it’s not been the best year for Anthem, has it? BioWare’s multiplayer shooter certainly underperformed and seems to be slipping into obscurity the more the months slip past, even if the newer content offerings are pretty good.
However Anthem is going to forge into its future, it’s going to be doing so without the aid of its now-former lead producer. Ben Irving announced on Twitter this Wednesday that it is time for him to move on from BioWare to another game studio – something he’s done before, MMO players will recall, as he was once lead producer on SWTOR.
“After 8 amazing years at BioWare I have made the decision to move on and have accepted an exciting opportunity at another gaming company,” Irving said. “I believe Anthem has a bright future — there is a great team working on it and I look forward to following its progress (and playing it!) from the sidelines.”
