BioWare's Anthem locked in for a March 2019 release

Sound the trumpets.

EA has confirmed that BioWare's Anthem will launch in March 2019.

EA's Blake Jorgensen broke the news during a financial call with analysts, committing the game to a release in "the last quarter of the year and in the last month of that quarter." EA's financial year comes to a close at the end of March, pushing the game to most likely provide a strong start to the new financial year's records.

The release date follows on from the Mass Effect series which has traditionally launched in a similar window. Following the rejection of Andromeda however, Jorgensen said that EA wanted to be "conservative" regarding Anthem's success, which is no surprise given the title is a new intellectual property, but does pose a worrying question for BioWare's future should the game fail.

We've yet to see much about Anthem beyond its original reveal demonstrating a focus on co-op, but we expect to see more at this year's E3 in a month or so.
