The latest from BioWare

BioWare’s next game is called Anthem. Electronic Arts debuted the first tease of the game today during its EA Play press conference, just ahead of the official start of E3 2017.

A full gameplay reveal will come later this week, during Microsoft’s E3 2017 briefing. That will air live on Sunday, June 11 at 2 p.m. PT.

Details are scant for now about Anthem, which appears to be set in a futuristic world. It’s a brand new property for BioWare. Known previously by the codename “Dylan,” the game has been rumored to be in development for years.

EA previously announced that Anthem will be an action-adventure title that will work as a “live service,” similar to how games like Destiny are run. The publisher also said in May that, although BioWare’s project was originally set to launch by the end of its current fiscal year, Anthem has since been delayed past March 2018. It will launch sometime during EA’s 2019 fiscal year.

E3 2017 officially begins on June 13, with press conferences starting June 10. For the big announcements, make sure to check out our one-stop shop for the show's streams.
