    This is the highlights from the report relating to their new IP (Anthem).

    Andrew Wilson Electronic Arts Inc. -

    "Looking forward, we'll continue our aggressive pace of innovation through experiences that capitalize in our technology, network and creativity. We are very pleased with the progress of our new action IP from BioWare. The design is stunning, Gameplay mechanics are excellent and the action will be exhilarating. The game is built around a live service, and through our creative process, we've decided to add more to the disruptive new social designs for our players. To accommodate that, we are moving the launch date for this project into fiscal year '19."

    "In terms of the new IP, the choice to move the new IP and what happened with Mass Effect are completely unrelated. The reality is, is we have a creative process. As a company, creativity and pioneering is really important for us. Now -- innovation in games is important more now than ever. And as a leader in the industry, we see it as our responsibility to innovate. And as part of that creative process, and I get to be involved in that creative process, we recognize that there was so much more opportunity in a connected network, social world to do some things in the new BioWare game that had never been done before and we don't think anyone is going to do any time soon. But by virtue of our network, our cross-platform presence and our scale, we think we can do that. And we chose to give the team some more time to deliver against that innovation because we believe players are looking for the kinds of things that we plan to put into that game".

    Some interesting comments and terms used to discribe Anthem, encouraging.
