First off, I should say that I know Anthem & Division 2 aren't technically 'MMORPGs' but I figured this was a good place to ask this question as you'll all be aware of gearing up your characters in the games that you play and may be able to relate.
Anyway... I've been away from MMOs for a good while now and as there's currently not any Triple A MMOs having been released, I'm resorting to the next best thing for me, which is either Anthem or The Division 2. My issue is that I've no idea which to choose out of the two. Both of the games appeal to me and I'll most likely find the gameplay just as fun in either. What I'm really looking for is something which has a good endgame. I used to play Destiny 2 and once I'd geared up and completed the story, there wasn't really much left to do except for playing just for the sake of it. In these kind of games I tend to get my gaming gratification from constantly being able to increase the power of my character, whether it be from gear, abilities, or a mixture of both.
I've noticed that there's been a lot of bad reviews about Anthem, but I'm not sure whether to read too much into them as I figure Bioware & EA are both huge developers/publishers and will make changes if & when they feel it is necessary. I also heard that Anthem have a 10 year plan ahead of them, so there should be a decent amount of updates and DLC in the future to keep me busy. I guess the same goes for Divison 2 as well really.
Do either of these games have a gear treadmill, meaning I'll always be able to upgrade my character's gear and/or abilities, or will it stop at some point once I reach a certain gear level? I used to love playing WoW due to their gear treadmill, and perhaps I'm in the minority but that kind of gameplay really appeals to me and keeps me coming back for me, knowing that there's always something else out there for me to work towards.
*TLDR: Which has a better endgame out of Anthem & Division 2?*
