As Anthem leads move on to other projects within BioWare, fans of the game have theories that the developer is cutting its losses. Over the past few days, Anthem players have noticed prominent leaders have updated twitter bios indicating that they are no longer involved with the game.
We remain 100% committed to Anthem and look forward to showing players the new content we are working on. We want to make sure we aren’t overpromising, so our updates on what’s coming in the game will be focused when we have things near completion.

VG 24/7 reported that Anthem executive Mark Harra and lead producer Michael Gamble have been moved on to other projects, with Harra quietly confirming that the team is working on Dragon Age 4 (a game that itself was put on halt to support Anthem). Gamble has told fans that the developer isn’t abandoning Anthem, however he directed enquiries towards Anthem lead producer Ben Irving and head of line service Chad Robertson.
Due to the staff switch arounds, many fans took to twitter and reddit to complain about the sudden movements, with many posting about the game being “dead”. Others complained to BioWare, pleading with them to fix Anthem before moving on to new projects.
