EA think you'll be playing Anthem for ten years

Unveiled at E3 2017, BioWare’s next game, Anthem, looks like a world to get lost in. Set in a vast, hostile landscape, you’ll be stomping around it in mech suits, flying like Iron Man, and laying down rocket barrages on the monsters that roam the wilds, all while unlocking sweeter and sweeter gear. It’s third-person Destiny, essentially.  

If you want to know what got announced at E3, check out our list of upcoming PC games for all the future hits. 

It’s going to be one of those games that taps into your lizard brain and keeps you pumping away for loot. Its success will hinge on whether it has longevity or not, and publishers EA are betting on it having that staying power. 

In a Microsoft livestream - embedded above - EA’s Patrick Söderlund spoke to Major Nelson about just that. In the chat, he states that EA see Anthem’s launch as the start of a ten-year journey, so expect plenty of post-launch support. 

The game has already been in development for four years, so those developers at BioWare better strap in - it’s going to be a long-ass trip. It does make you wonder if a new console generation appearing before then might mess with those plans, though. Also, who plays a game for a decade? 

Anyway, Anthem is out in 2018.

They said the same thing about Destiny

That's what I was thinking. They already got a lot of flak online for looking like a destiny clone, but this is just too blatant.

If they build a world with fast consistent releases of content and challenges, I don't see why a game can't reach the 10 year mark. Destiny said they were shooting for the same, but they released with too many player complaints (resulting in an early drop from game to 'franchise' lifespan).

If they don't shut the servers down first.

Whelp, hopefully other companies will be able to satisfy my epic RPG needs.

If they allow purchased skins, emotes to carry over for those 10 years they'll draw in Destiny players who lose everything in the Bungieverse

I really hope it comes out on Steam and not some third party client.
