Bioware’s upcoming high-budget shooter-RPG, Anthem, is one of the most anticipated upcoming multi-platform games after being revealed at this year’s E3 event. The game is aiming to contend with Bungie’s epic sci-fi shooter Destiny 2. Unfortunately for Bioware, one of Anthem ‘s key contributors has passed away.
