Although it is expected to be a great blockbuster, EA as BioWare really knows how to make fans… disappointed. After the hit “flop” Mass Effect: Andromeda in 2017, Anthem is the next name to be stoned by the people. Possessing excellent graphics, but Anthem still has many shortcomings in both gameplay, content and game operation of the developer. The truth is that, but who would have thought that Anthem was still able to overwhelm other outstanding games to reach the top 5 best-selling games of the year up to now.
At the time of release, the game was sold for $ 60 (1.4 million) – a number that is considered “heavenly” for a “big bomb” in the game industry. After a disastrous launch, Anthem continuously dropped prices on all fronts and until now, the price of the game has dropped to the extreme, only about $ 13. While the price drop only further proves the game’s failure, surprisingly, Anthem is still one of the most successful games of the year, at least in terms of revenue.
According to a report by NPD, a market research company in the US, Anthem along with Mortal Kombat 11, Kingdom Hearts 3, Madden NFL 20 and The Division 2 are the top 5 best-selling games of 2019 up to now. . Even super products like Resident 2, Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA 5 have to run long to catch up with Anthem’s sales.
In fact, earlier this year, the NPD reported that Anthem was the best-selling game in February – the month of launch. The game’s sales at the time of release were second only to Mass Effect 3, a highly appreciated product of the company. This explains why BioWare is still “dying” to maintain updates, unlike Valve’s Artifact.
