Anthem Delayed for New Battlefield Game in October

A tweet from the Wall Street Journal has word from the hotbed of gaming that EA's Blake Jorgensen confirms for them the recent rumors of release date change for Anthem, but they say this is to clear the path for a new Battlefield game in October (thanks Polygon). Thus, he explains this delay is not a delay:

Electronic Arts says it is now planning to release "Anthem," an online multiplayer action game from its BioWare studio, in early 2019 instead of fall 2018 as originally planned. The company denies a report in videogame site Kotaku earlier this month claiming the change is due to development being behind schedule. Instead EA is planning to release a new Battlefield game in October and determined that Anthem, the new intellectual property, would get more attention if it came out in a quieter quarter. "It's not a delay," EA's finance chief Blake Jorgensen tells the WSJ. "People are trying to create a story."
