EA already confirmed that new gameplay footage for Anthem will be shown off for this year’s E3 event.
Anthem’s release was pushed back into 2019 earlier this year, although EA denied that the game has been delayed. “Regardless of how it’s being portrayed, we’re not look at that as a delay, we’ve chosen to launch Anthem in [the fourth quarter]. The date is chosen by by portfolio balance, not product readiness,” EA’s Andrew Wilson said. “And we’re really excited by the way the new Battlefield is shaping up. It probably doesn’t make too much sense to launch Anthem right by it. As a new IP, it probably makes sense to give [Anthem] its own launch window.”
EA's action-RPG will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in March 2019.
