When E3 darling Anthem was finally released by BioWare in the winter of 2019, it landed with a thud not unlike one of its crashing Javelin robot suits.
But when, in 2020, instead of abandoning the project, BioWare publicly acknowledged its failings and pledged to correct them, well, one might even have applauded the company for deciding to spend money and time when it just as easily could have moved on.
But, alas, such things were not to be.
Things fall apart, the Anthem cannot hold...in Virtual Legality.
