Bioware Planning to Combat Toxicity in Anthem

Anthem is set to arrive on February 21st, 2019, and the developer has a plan to combat the toxicity that is consistent in the gaming community.

On the Anthem subreddit, a Redditor named Hidden_Stapler asked developers what they plan to do to combat toxicity that has riddled a number of other popular titles. In response to the question, Senior Systems Designer Chris Schmidt issued the following response:

“There has been quite a bit of talk about this recently in game development, led by the Fair Play Alliance. There are some great learnings about methods to combat toxicity that have been shared by several studios for the greater good. The tricky part is before you launch the game you don’t really know how much toxicity will surface in your player community.

The approach we have been taking is a proactive one: studying best practices and success stories around the game industry and applying some of those in Anthem. I can’t really speak to details at this point, but I’m working with a holistic plan with the ability to both be proactive and reactive to whatever flavor of community standards settle in around Anthem.

It’s an important issue, and i’m encouraged that game developers are openly talking about it and sharing solutions among the dev community.”
