Following the announcement a couple weeks back that EA was deciding whether or not to cancel Bioware's Anthem NEXT, an attempt at rebuilding the widely disappointing loot RPG, Schreir has reported that EA opted to cancel the development.
Shortly following the tweet, former Anthem NEXT lead Christian Dailey put out a blog post confirming that Anthem NEXT was officially cancelled, as well as touching very briefly upon some of the obstacles that presented themselves along the way. It sounds as though the development team that was designing the NEXT update will be moved to Dragon Age 4 development.
What do you all think, is it for the best that Anthem NEXT got canned? Or could a rebuilt Anthem have lived up to the comparisons to other rebuilds, such as the oft referenced FF14: A Realm Reborn, or No Man's Sky?
