It has been recently reported that some of Anthem or Bioware Edmonton devs weren’t too happy about the controversial culture critic, Anita Sarkeesian, visiting the studio back on January 25th, 2018.
[Note: The information has not been confirmed by any named sources at BioWare Edmonton and should be taken with a grain of salt.]
According to YouTuber LegacyKillaHD it is said that one of his sources that leaks information regarding Anthem has relayed some stuff about Anita Sarkeesian’s visit to the Bioware Edmonton studio. Her visit can be traced back to late January, and it is said that things didn’t go over too well.
Overall, some of the team pretended to be hospitable toward Sarkeesian, but seem to have expressed a contrary opinion of her once she left. The video explaining the concealed sour meet and greet sits below.
According to LegacyKillaHD’s source, who has a fairly legit track record of predicting things, noted to him that some of Bioware Edmonton’s devs were “pretty pissed that she was brought into the studio”.
The source went on to say that she was brought over to speak with some of the developers that “fawn over her” and to see gameplay. Whatever Sarkeesian had said during her trip to the studio, another developer at Bioware Edmonton said they felt “sick to their stomach” about some of the things she had to say.
In addition to the above, the leaker sent LegacyKillaHD the following notice as featured in the video:
“The amount of fire and negativity that came out of the office about her toxic nature was pretty clear”.
It is said that the higher ups at the studio noticed the confrontation, but tried diverting it by saying that “there are more pressing issues like the game itself”.
Right now it’s hard to tell how legit all of the information is given that it’s coming from an unnamed source, but given Sarkeesian’s past and current narratives all of the above doesn’t seem farfetched at all.
With all of that said, do you think that LegacyKillaHD source is right? And do you believe that some of the things Sarkeesian got to see of Anthem and suggest will further trouble development?
