Christian Dailey, studio director at Bioware Austin, recently revealed (opens in new tab) concept art of the Pirates of the Blood Wind, a new pirate faction coming to Anthem 2.0—an entirely reworked new version of the unsuccessful loot-shooter.
In addition to this, Dailey also shared concept art for locations, including the pirate hideout:
Lots of good discussion around our Pirate friends and new factions. We want to share more on factions and the part they play in the future. One common question though is "where do the Pirates live?" Here of course .... Happy Friday all. pic.twitter.com/dhfFvNXGdyJuly 17, 2020

Previously Dailey posted he purposefully held off on talking about work on Anthem, saying "these last few weeks I did not feel was the right time to start talking about Anthem. I wanted to give space for more important conversations in the world to take place, many of which are still going on."
He also mentions that future blog posts on development would focus on some of the changes around loot and gear. Dailey said he is aware of the many questions players currently have and hopes to address them soon.
This is the first glimpse at how the Anthem focus team is doing since the blog post back in May. Dailey seems to be working on a new post, so I'd expect some more substantial info in the near future.
