EA confirms new Battlefield for October 2018; Anthem delayed to 2019

EA Confirms'Early 2019 Release Claims It's Not a Delay Also Posts Nearly $200M Loss in Q3 2017- Anthem

EA has also reported that Anthem was delayed into 2019 to let the next Battlefield game have its moment in the spotlight. According to Electronic Arts, a new Battlefield is planned for release in October, which it determined would overshadow Anthem, a new intellectual property.

Perhaps the least surprising thing to come from the investors call is the heavily rumored delay for Anthem.

The Kotaku report made BioWare's situation sound troubling, but Jorgensen's statement actually fits well with EA's recent past experience.

"It's not a delay", EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen told The Wall Street Journal. "'People are trying to create a story'".

Regardless of if you want to call it a delay or not, Bioware's new competitor to Destiny/The Division won't hit until 2019 as many of us have been expecting.

BioWare's Destiny-alike online shooter Anthem was expected to be released sometime near the end of this year, and in fact if you go to the official Anthem YouTube channel, it still lists "fall 2018" as the release date. Additionally, many within BioWare worry that the continued existence of the company is reliant on Anthem's success, as EA has infamously shut down numerous well-established development teams in the past. Back in October, EA announced an upcoming and never-titled single-player "Star Wars" adventure was being picked apart and repurposed as something players would stick around with longer than the average single-player narrative game lasts.
