Many months ago, rumors were floating around that BioWare was planning a massive overhaul of Anthem. The game's launch didn't go smoothly because of the convoluted and incomplete story and performance issues. Since then, the team has fixed the technical issues, but the overall problems with gameplay remain.
Today, Christian Dailey, the Studio Director for BioWare Austin, discussed the Anthem revival and how the team was experimenting with certain features. You can read an excerpt from the BioWare blog below.
It's unclear what the timeline for the Anthem overhaul is, but it it may be towards the end of 2020 or beyond. What do you want to see from the game's overhaul? Let us know.

Interesting.. I have to say, the initial footage had me super stoked for the game. Until it came out and reviews were trash. Such a disappointment. But, if they somehow manage to re-release it the way it was meant to be.. I may reconsider. It had a lot of potential!
I like this attitude from the devs. I'm personally a big fan of fixing past missteps. So, you underperformed, overpromised etc. and things didn't work out, but what is more important is going back and completing or fixing what needs to be fixed. I wish them the best, I think they can pull it off if they keep at it!
There are really people who are good for the pantheon of videogames.
Goty, overhaul, ultimate
