That means Anthem is still on track for a calendar-year Q1 release.

Speaking during Electronic Arts' quarterly earnings briefing, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen revealed that the company is expecting Anthem to launch in the last month of the last quarter of fiscal year 2019, which would place its release date in March.

An Electronic Arts financial call has potentially revealed a new tidbit about Anthem, BioWare's high profile action role-playing title.

"Every dimension of [Anthem] will offer something entirely new for a wide audience of players - from a new universe with unique stories that BioWare is creating, to the cooperative gameplay, to the epic and attractive environment that constantly evolves around players', EA boss Andrew Wilson told investors, following the company's latest financial results".

Every BioWare game should feel like the story is about the player, Hudson said.

"Later in the fiscal year, we'll launch our stunning and ambitious new IP Anthem". If this is true, it will be the first major Call of Duty game ever not to have any single player campaign. The last month of EA's fiscal year is March 2019 and so Jorgensen is confirming that Anthem will be out then. After many people hated Star Wars Battlefront 2's pay-to-win system, BioWare and EA has made some changes for Anthem. For the sake of every gamer, and BioWare, we certainly hope so. This is likely in reference to the Anthem beta tests that were previously confirmed by game director Jonathan Warner. "Anthem represents one way to deliver innovation and new experiences in the spirit of our mission". A brand new idea combining the latest tech and a vision for something extraordinary. "It is fast, dangerous, handsome and unexpected", EA's Patrick Soderlund said at EA Play in June. These details will be shared "very soon", but he said that you don't have to worry about being forced to engage in multiplayer. "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".
