  1. STEP 1: Assure long term plans for game. STEP 2: Pretend game doesn’t exist. STEP 3: Quietly kill off game. This is what happened with Andromeda, and Anthem sure seems to be on its way to step 3 going by EA’s past history and their current behavior.

  2. I’m not at all surprised. Mass effect suffered, anthem suffered, at this point the last hurrah is dragon age, and that seems dubious now.

    • Especially with scuttlebutt saying DA4 will be another Gaas money making scheme from EA.

    • @Kent Arnold Ohh, do you have a link? Think I want to do a bit of delving to see whats been uncovered so far.

      Usually smudboy covers those but lately he’s been branching out to none-game related content.

    • DA is dead.

    • @Blackemperess Inquisition came out at a good time where it didn’t have a ton of competition. Also, it got plenty of updates and DLC.

      But yeah, I think if they can make DA4 work, they could come back. Maybe, but I just don’t think anyone has much faith in that anymore.

    • yeah but I wouldn’t bet on it, I still don’t get why instead of focusing on the grey warden they choose the war between mage and templar. I know we can’t have a blight at every game otherwise it wouldn’t suite the lore but still starting from episode 2 every time I had a character complaining about how cruel the templar or how dangerous the mage are my eyes were rolling. I liked the dark fantasy from the first game and now with inquisition I have the more feeling of playing a random asian MMO in solo, I was even expecting my character to shout the name of his spell during the fight .

  3. To all the Anthem fanboys that kept telling us, the people that were not idiots, that we were just haters……

    Take the ‘L’ like a champ, along with your buddies at EA, and fade off into the corners of the interweb.

  4. EA is like the “black plague” of 21st century , whatever Bussines/Studio it touches it infects and ruins….. Lets use the old cure , and isolate them , don’t buy nothing that has EA stamp on it, nothing from them…..

  5. Bye-oware hahaha!!!

    Bye bye Bioware, rest in piece my sweet angel, thanks for the memories 22/5/1995 – 11/11/2007

    • Bioware was stil killing it with ME2 in 2010. And despite its ending, ME3 as a game was a blast. With the Citadel DLC being their best expansion ever. After that it was all downhill.

    • Game of the year 2014

    • @Jet134 ME2 was the best in the series, and ME3 was mostly incredible apart from the ending and the Prothean retcon (where’s my 10 foot tall tentacle-fingered science boiz from the first game?!), which was clearly rushed and not what they originally wanted to do.

      It was the tacked-on multiplayer with it’s lootboxes set off the alarm bells for me. I’ll admit to buying some in order to play as a Salarian, but that wore off quick and the only thing I’ve bought from EA since is Titanfall 2. Origin isn’t on my PC anymore…

    • @Disembowell not exactly a retcon if you consider what Javik says. All the other species that were with the Protheans would be named Protheans as well. But yeah, mostly retcon. We did get Javik because of this, who became one of my favorite ME3 squadmates. Nothing beats Garrus though.

    • More like 2011.

    “EA starts to treat Anthem like it’s dead and doesn’t exists”
    Just like the gaming community has been doing from the beginning.

    • @Hammerjjack why are you expecting anything

      Its EA dude

    • Ajit Adonis Manilal

      Or like we’ve been treating EA, Bethesda and Activision.

    • yous gon git dem cheeks took my nigga

      @selena8472 same here anthem had so much potential just look at it even maple story and other 10 plus year old games are doing better than it its a damn shame if only they delivered what was promised and shown at e3

    • @yous gon git dem cheeks took my nigga the biggest appeal to me is i am such *a huge tony fan!!!!* and gettin to fly around in one of “his suits” oh wow i was like oh my gawd!!!!this is super cool!!! 😀

    • late night wizard !

      Yup

  7. Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli Quetzalcoatl

    Bethesda: “Fallout 76 will be the greatest AAA-Trainwreck of history”
    Bioware: “Hold my beer!”

    • Aloha Tigers they still are fixing shit in the game tho. So your point is wrong

    • 76 is horseshit but i will give Bethesda credit for not running away from it.

    • @solo uno i think its your brain that needs some fixing if you failed to understant what he ment

    • Time to see a lot of people that either never played 76 or played it for 1 week trash talk it to no end. Meanwhile I’ll get ready to be called a “Bethesda fanboy” or “Howard cocksleeve” by the same people.

    • @J-THR3 Yong just wants to ride the hate train like most other YouTubers out there for clicks instead of just thinking for him self. Really goes to show you how falliable YouTubers can be.

  8. How the beloved Bioware fall from grace. Never let EA touch your game/studio. Never.

  9. 100% it will go free to play and increase the price of microtransactions… 10000000% will happen before EA pulls the plug.

    • you would have to pay me to play this crap
      pay me well too, my time is worth something

    • They wouldve done that already. Or after Apex Legends was an unexpected hit.

    • DarkKitarist And I still wouldn’t play it. The game froze my ps4 multiple times and I was forced to hard shut off resulting in my hard drive failing. Had to buy a new hard drive lol

    • Yeah, neither would I after finding out that EA, Activision, 2K, TakeTwo, Rockstar and other haven’t paid taxes in years and have been using tax heavens I’m seriously thinking of going back to Pirating games…

  10. Wowie! It’s almost like it’s a _bad_ idea to force a studio known for its story-driven single-player RPGs to make a multiplayer live service loot-em-up.

    • @Shaian Bioware has been hot wet garbage for a while now. That’s why Andromeda happened.

    • @Tommyliminus Only thing EA said was to use the frostbite engine, which the bioware staff aren’t good with at all

    • @Genoh That is the only thing EA is guilty of, having a developer use an engine that isn’t meant for open-world (or even ones that aren’t open-world) RPGs at all.

    • Genoh That’s true and was a dumb move! The engine looks amazing but is horrible to use and adapt to a 3rd person rpg 😂

    • @SpiceMustFlow It is Casey Hudson´s “Bob Dylan of games”. I also thought it was EA forcing them to use Frostbite for their games. But no, that is their own doing and decision as well. The fact, they didn´t know what game they were actually making until last year or so of development is also not EA´s fault. It is actually terrible to defend EA against what is used to be my favourite developer but so is the reality. It doesn´t make EA better company, but they are not responsible for every mistake under their roof.

  11. EA as a whole is just Dutch Van Der Linde

    “Just one more big, scam game! Then we’ll have enough muneh to disappear to Tahiti.”

  12. EA: “Why am I still getting hate?”
    *Lies about gameplay,plans etc and kills off game pretending that nothing is wrong*

    • That’s EA for yea

    • idk I think 76 was more of a trainwreck lol

    • Berkan Denizyaran would approve.

      Actually, the people at EA are narcissists who think they can just get away with any of their failures. Only retards like the UK would lack the braincells to view “surprise mechanics” as “not gambling”. (Yes; you are still gambling, even if you don’t get any money from the lootbox roulette!)

    • *killing Visceral*

    • Remember that they sold it while explicitly saying it was “captured in engine”, for a product that didn’t even exist at the time. How is it that there isn’t a class lawsuit for false advertisement?

  13. If you listen closely, you can hear Bioware’s footsteps towards the chopping block.

  14. xXSilentAgent47Xx

    Anyone realize every game published by EA died by them?
    NFS (since from beginning of MW release to Carbon), Burnout, Mass Effect, Dead Space, Mercenaries 2…
    Only game that still stands is The Sims 4. But not same The Sims we know from sequels (2 and 3, where they did put more efforts than cash grab 4 less efforts).
    EA is being Dutch van der Linde. Keep thinking about his “plan”, but everyone died because of him and snake in team.

    • To be fair to the Sims, I feel like they would have released Sims 5 by now had they any idea what they could do with it. The simple fact is, the Sims just can’t really improve much more.

      The Sims 2 was the biggest improvement over Sims 1 and we are just never going to be able to have that again

    • xXSilentAgent47Xx Except for the fact that MW is one of the most critically acclaimed NFS games alongside UG2.

  15. EA: _Anthem is no longer_

    Worst Company Of 2019 Award: *I’m about to end this mans whole career a 3RD Time.*
    [06-08-2019_16_46.]

  16. Knights of the Geek Republic

    RIP Bioware. 1995-2019. (But really died in 2011 after Mass Effect 3)

  17. Why should they care? Their next game will be bought just as much as Anthem, so there’s really no reason for them to do better.

    As long as people pay EA for treating them like idiots, EA will view it’s customer as idiots.

  18. Its official, the only company I
    have faith in is CD Project Red

  19. EA. Early Access. perfectly describes their games.

  20. *Groan* Can’t there every be any GOOD news about recent games in 2019? Sure doesn’t seem like it.
