"Later in the fiscal year, we'll launch our stunning and ambitious new IP Anthem". "In the year ahead, we will expand the world of play with wonderful new experiences and new IP, more competition, and industry-leading subscription programs".
Every player in BioWare's upcoming online role-playing game "Anthem" will be the hero of their own story, general manager Casey Hudson assured fans on the BioWare blog Thursday. So, it isn't much of a surprise that some fans are rightly anxious about the direction of Bioware and how a game like Anthem might affect their storytelling prowess. This in tandem with the affirmations suggests Anthem should be akin to Bungie's deal with Activision over Destiny, and that BioWare will be working on the game (and the franchise) for quite some time after release. One that's going to take time to get right. "What if I don't have friends that I play games with?" The opening of the Jarra's Wrath box really underlined this point. The game previously had a release window of Quarter 4 of EA's Fiscal Year, which put it to release in early 2019, so this annoucnement is not too much of a surprise.
Wilson also hinted that there may be a way for people to access Anthem early, though that could be anything from beta tests to just the usual early access anybody who has an EA Access membership often gets for the newest titles.

Recently, some interesting new details about the game and the plans for it were teased by EA. So the initial alpha/beta game we play during, say, before Battlefield V's launch, should be entirely different than the finished product that launches in March 2019.
In a financial conference call, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen announced that Anthem will release in March 2019. In it, he presents the new mission statement by which all games will be developed. A brand new idea combining the latest tech and a vision for something extraordinary. And clearly, it will impact this year as well as next year as we not only continue to sell more into the next year but start rolling out the live services associated with that game'.
