Much has been written about Anthem’s rocky path through development, shaky launch, and the recent reshuffling of post-launch plans as developer BioWare continues to try and save its struggling online game.
Now, publisher EA has weighed in with its take on the financial side of things. It’s not great but, actually, it’s not all bad either.
Let’s get that bad stuff out the way first. “Anthem underperformed our expectations,” EA exec Blake Jorgensen said during the company’s investor call late last night (transcribed by Seeking Alpha). This seems to be the overall vibe. “The launch of Anthem did not meet our expectations,” EA boss Andrew Wilson also confirmed at one point.
