BioWare Austin’s studio director confirms Anthem reboot will be more transparent and ‘a longer process’

That's not good, no.

It’s been some time since we heard about the rumored and then confirmed reboot to Anthemsince February, to be precise. As of this past Friday, BioWare Austin studio director Christian Dailey has popped up with a quick dev blog update that effectively says that there’s going to be some time yet before the game is ready:

“The Anthem incubation team has kicked off and we are starting to validate our design hypotheses. Incubation is a term we use internally – it essentially means we are going back and experimenting/prototyping to improve on the areas where we believe we fell short and to leverage everything that you love currently about Anthem. We are a small team – about 30-ish, earning our way forward as we set out to hit our first major milestone goals. Spoiler – this is going to be a longer process. And yes, the team is small but the whole point of this is to take our time and go back to the drawing board. And a small team gives us the agility a larger one can’t afford.”

Dailey further confirms that the development of the next Anthem will be more transparent starting with this dev blog, with further showcases including things like concept art and livestreams. Ultimately, Dailey says that players will get to see “how the sausage is made – which is not always pretty.”
