[Update #2]: BioWare has now officially stopped all development on Anthem.

[Update]: It seems that BioWare is not giving up on Anthem. They have now announced that they are planning to reinvent and rebuild its gameplay and character progression from the ground up!

While the actual gameplay is genuinely enjoyable, Anthem has unfortunately launched with quite a few serious problems under its belt. In order to assure the community that they have everything under control, as well as to showcase the content that is to come, BioWare quickly unveiled a Roadmap filled with all sorts of new features. As you're probably well aware at this point, some of those Roadmap features have sadly never come to fruition.

This is where I would love to tell you that BioWare has solved all of the problems and is bringing in a boatload of new content, but I'm afraid that's not exactly the case. After already missing some of their Roadmap release dates, BioWare has now simply removed just about everything interesting from the Roadmap.

All that remains right now is a promise for further fixes, improvements and optimizations, as well as brand new legendary missions. There's apparently such a lack of upcoming content that they have actually listed "Prospero Store refresh" as one of the major features you can look forward to. Yikes!

While things are definitely looking bad for both Anthem and BioWare, what with all of the rumors about the team being shuffled over to Dragon Age 4, I do honestly hope they'll manage to pull through and eventually transform Anthem into a truly exceptional game. It really has some serious potential, but it desperately needs someone with a solid vision to help guide it along. I just don't want to see another repeat of Mass Effect: Andromeda where BioWare simply gives up on their game and leaves the community hanging.

My little musings aside, you can check out the full Roadmap, as well as follow any future updates, over at the official website.
