Electronic Arts Says They'll Do Better with Anthem

Once bitten, twice shy. At least, that's how fans of Electronic Arts are feeling after all the fiascos behind Star Wars: Battlefront II. But in a new interview with The Verge, the company claims that they've learned their lesson and will apply it to Anthem.

The website interviewed longtime EA executive Patrick Söderlund, who spoke on the matter of how fans see the company, all the issues they went through with Star Wars, the work they're doing on Anthem, and how they basically promise to do better on the next game. The big question you have to ask yourself as a fan is: Do you trust them at this point? Here's a snippet from the interview below.

"It's clear to us that players see the company differently than we do," he says. "And in that situation, as a member of the executive team, as the guy who runs all of the studios, I have to take that seriously. And we have to continue to listen and understand what's triggering that. We have to be very cautious of what we do." But Söderlund acknowledges that only the company's actions, not its words, will make a true difference.

"We have to take action and show people that we're serious about building the best possible products, that we're serious about treating the players fair, and we're here to make the best possible entertainment that we can," he says. "And in the cases where we don't get it right, we just have to listen and learn from it and be better."
