Anthem - EA’s next PR disaster after BF 5

By all accounts EA gave Bioware every chance and advantage. The only corporate mandated thing was the choice of engine, and you can't pin the games failings on that alone.

They had six damn years and had their key mobility shit like flight active with only months to go.
They gave the worms infesting Bioware's corpse every chance after they murdered the previous user of the body.

And that's going to be a liver service game, so might as well get those F keys at the ready.
Supposedly EA refuses to greenlight anything that doesn't have a live service multiplayer component. There's an old CDPR AMA on Reddit where they talked about approaching EA before settling on WB games as a publisher for Witcher 3 and EA turned them down because they wouldn't include a multiplayer function.

I mean, aside from the whole lootbox profitability thing it allows EA to continue putting always-online DRM in their games without all the backlash they got when they did it with the Simcity reboot and when they were going to do it with Sims 4. Hell, they even basically did it with Spore and getting the online service's buggy ass to work has consistently been my biggest gripe about it.

Yeah, but can't you just log the fuck out of the servers as soon as the game boots? ME3 and DA:I both let you do that, and Inquisition allowed you to you set offline as the default.
