Both fan and critical reception has been mixed at best, but I'm holding out hope that Crystal Dynamics can make it work.
In the expanded footage below, we get a good look at the "A-Day" prologue mission, which will act as a tutorial for players. The gameplay shows off how the Avengers handle and the gameplay associated with their respective powers and abilities.

"I have really enjoyed interacting with the Anthem community - Streams, Twitter and Reddit. Through the good times and the tough times. You all are in great hands with [Jesse Anderson] and [Andrew Johnson] (and have been for some time now). I wish nothing but the best for all of you."

But after three years and no game, it seems publisher THQ Nordic is out of patience, giving Dambuster Studios the role of both lead developer for the game, and the franchise overall.

Ghost Games released a trailer Heat today, showcasing the series continued focus on high-performance street racing and avoiding the long arm of the law.
