I wonder if the failure of Destiny 2 has got then shaking in their wee boots a bit too?

Didn't Destiny 2 fail (I have no idea if it did as I haven't kept track of it) because of all the various bits of fuckery Bungie and Activision are constantly up to? You'd hope EA learned enough lessons from their own strawberry float ups with Star Wars BF2 for Anthem not to suck balls.

From what I can tell the answer to that is 'partially.' Although all the dodginess didn't help, the game itself was apparently little more than a big expansion that didn't understand why people liked the first game and removed/changed a bunch of stuff people enjoyed without addressing the biggest Destiny problem of all: Endgame content.

As for failing, I'm sure it sold well initially but all I've read since is how player numbers have tanked. There's been a few really interesting pieces written on Destiny focused streamers being forced to diversify as they had simply gotten bored with the game.

If Anthem is as based on the Destiny model as it originally appeared, BioWare are going to need a unique take on the genre to convince people it's worth sticking with.

Amazingly it was pretty much all Bungie (even the micro transaction stuff).
