    It is EA!

    That is all I have to say.

    Yeah, this is EA trying a bit too hard to avoid putting their hands up and saying "sorry Anthem was awful" to their shareholders - plenty of other publishers have had plenty of success with the traditional release model. I'm pretty sure EA have been doing soft launches for years anyway with extensive beta tests of their multiplayer games and selling basically unfinished games at full price on day one.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for bugfixes and improvements, but some of the things that slip through the net on the way to a game going gold are amateurish mistakes. That said, if we actually put our money where our mouths are and universally stopped buying EA's unfinished beta products until they're finished, this would change very quickly.
