RIP Anthem: BioWare says it will finally abandon its ambitious Destiny rival Anthem

In a long-feared but not surprising move, BioWare has finally cancelled Anthem. To be specific, the company has abandoned its planned overhaul of the game in order to repurpose personnel to the next Dragon Age and Mass Effect games.

Technically, you can still play the game as it is, though BioWare didn’t state how long it would keep Anthem’s live service going in the company blog post announcing the news. Given the game hasn’t had a major content addition since the Anthem Cataclysm update in September 2019, you won’t see anything new – and presumably won’t get anything from the overhaul announced in February 2020 that a small, dedicated team had been working on since.
