Anthem, BioWare's ambitious multiplayer role-playing game, will now launch the other side of this Christmas.

That's according to a report published by Kotaku last night. Eurogamer sources have heard similar.

The report suggests we'll see the game in the spring of 2019. Officially, Anthem holds a vague "2018" placeholder date.

Word that development will take a little longer comes as no surprise. We've seen and heard nothing of Anthem outside of its E3 reveal in June last year, and BioWare is obviously keen to polish the project after Mass Effect Andromeda turned up in need of more time.
