Anthem is EA’s next big IP and it seems the company has huge expectations for the game. Expecting to ship 5-6 million copies before the end of March 2019.

EA’s COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen said this and it seems like a very questionable number. As Anthem is releasing alongside other huge titles such as Jump Force, Metro Exodus, God Eater 3, and so many other games. In addition, fans have voiced confusion over the release window of the game as it has separate release dates based on whether you have a premium membership with EA’s services.

This is a very strange number, especially considering that the demo for Anthem wasn’t well-received and BioWare’s reputation has been shot after Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Anthem launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC this February 22nd. Those with Origin and EA Access will have access this February 15th. Check out our impressions here.
