Anthem has been on a downward slump since its launch. With information regarding its troubled development to the game’s lack of post-launch updates. Recently, the game’s roadmap was taken down and now BioWare has offered a new update on the game. Stating they’re planning to continue support for Anthem but the details are limited.

The blog post made by BioWare’s head of live service, Chad Robertson, convey that BioWare is working on “core issues”.

“We hear your concerns on core issues in Anthem and are acting on it,” says Robertson. “Those systems require a more thorough review and re-working versus quick fixes. We’ve got a team working on that now, and early results are promising.”

This seems like a strange focus. Balance and core changes are common for multiplayer focus titles but after months since release, the only reasonable update has been the Cataclysm update. With so much competition from other live service titles such as Fortnite, Overwatch, and Monster Hunter World Anthem is falling way behind.

Adding to the matter is that Anthem was recently added to EA Access. A service where players have access to dozens of EA titles for $4.99 a month. Usually, titles make it to the service after nearly a year but adding the game to the service so soon is questionable.

Anthem is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out our review here.
