Bioware provide Anthem NEXT Progress Update
In a blog post from Studio Director Christian Dailey, Bioware have provided an update on the evolution of Anthem. The main take away is that a 30 person team is now working on the title and they think a team of this size will allow them to be agile in development – but results are going to take time.
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.
