There was no proof of what Blomkamp was engaged on on the time, however contemplating that Blomkamp additionally directed a few of these unbelievable shorts for Halo 3, most individuals assumed that it might be one thing alongside the identical strains.
It additionally is sensible that BioWare/EA would greenlight such a venture when you think about that BioWare is making an attempt to promote avid gamers on the concept that Anthem goes to be extra narrative-based than a few of its competitors.
