Anthem’s lead developer Ben Irving leaves BioWare


Anthem has traveled a rocky road since release in February this year. After a less-than-stellar critical reception and a series of missteps post-launch, Anthem has struggled to live up to its own hype. In yet another blow to the game, Lead Developer Ben Irving announced today that he is leaving BioWare after eight years on the job.

Since Anthem’s launch, the game has undergone a series of updates under the careful guidance of Irving and Head of Live Service Chad Robertson. With today’s announcement, it is unknown who will be replacing Irving, if anyone. Most of BioWare’s cadre of developers have been moved off Anthem to work on the upcoming Dragon Age game.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on this story as it develops.
