All of us have that one neighbor, you recognize the sort. The man who doesn’t take his Christmas decorations down for weeks and even months following the vacation, or someway justifies leaving his lights up at some point of the 12 months. The day is February 7, 2020, and Anthem is that neighbor. The Anthem Christmas decorations nonetheless adorn its forgotten hub world. Maybe speaking the unhappy state of the sport, Anthem hasn’t acquired an replace to take away them because the vacation season ended. 44 days have handed since Christmas. 37 days since we crossed over into the New Yr. Valentine’s Day is in only one week. And Anthem’s Fort Tarsis remains to be strung with tinsel and lights.
The leftover decor was famous right this moment by GamesRadar Editor-in-Chief Sam Loveridge. We’ve additionally logged in to double-check (sure, I nonetheless have it put in, although I needed to do fairly a number of gigs value of updates), and certain sufficient, these twinkling vacation decorations stay sadly strung round. What as soon as evoked vacation cheer will get sadder and sadder the farther from the vacation we get.

The Anthem Christmas decorations have been added as a part of the Icetide seasonal replace on December 11, 2019. On January 22, 2020, Anthem acquired one other replace that prolonged the Icetide season “by means of February.” The extension of that season apparently additionally turned Anthem into that unhappy neighbor that also has an inflatable Santa and light-up wireframe reindeer of their yard.
Anthem Christmas Decorations as Good Information?
This is also seen as excellent news. Anthem’s growth workforce is rumored to be centered on a whole rework and relaunch of the sport, harnessing its core potential by means of vastly reworked endgame and development techniques. Whereas it’s tough to search out present participant numbers for Anthem, the sport was reportedly at lower than 2,500 gamers on Xbox in Might of final 12 months (only a few months after its launch). Likelihood is excessive that the numbers have dropped considerably since then. If the workforce is tough at work on reinventing your entire recreation, it won’t be value extending the dev hours to take down a few the Anthem Christmas decorations for only a few thousand folks throughout all platforms. Extending Icetide is the best method to preserve the sport going whereas BioWare works on what’s coming. And meaning festive vacation lights for just a bit whereas longer.
