Anthem set to launch in March 2019

Electronic Arts reports FY18 financial results

In the earnings call EA CEO Andrew Wilson referred to Anthem as a "brand new franchise", pretty much saying what I've thought for a while: the publisher is investing in Anthem for years and years to come.

BioWare is best known for its work on single-player games, although it does have some experience on the multiplayer side as well.

"Anthem is a fundamentally social experience and will open new ways for fans to join the community and play early, enabling us to shape and refine the game with their input and feedback. We also have teams envisioning future BioWare games, and they're designing approaches that are different from Anthem-including one that's very Dragon Age", he wrote. "What if I don't have friends that I play games with?" The opening of the Jarra's Wrath box really underlined this point. It's expected to launch in March 2019.

[Anthem] will be shipped in the last quarter of the year and in the last month of that quarter.
It's also now unknown if a story-based trailer is also on the cards for E3 2018, or if attendees will get any hands-on time with the title ahead of the probable open beta.

Now, beta and alpha tests are nothing new for EA games. Numerous things we love about games now were not possible a few years ago.

EA is a "learning company" after all.

EAs has given Anthem it's most specific release date yet, revealing to investors that it will launch in the last month of their current financial year - which is March next year. In it, he presents the new mission statement by which all games will be developed. This game will push every boundary for you.

Information on Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 will be announced during EA Play in June. These details will be shared "very soon", but he said that you don't have to worry about being forced to engage in multiplayer.

Though Wilson stressed that Electronic Arts will continue to support traditional game sales as long as consumers want them, he expects the company to increasingly focus on live services and subscriptions in its games.
