EA Is ‘Investigating’ Anthem Issue on PS4 That Reportedly Causes Hard Crashes

Several Anthem Players on PS4 Are Having Serious Technical Issues with the Game

EA announced on Monday that it was “investigating” reported instances of Anthem hard crashing on PS4 and, in several cases, turning off the console altogether.


“We’re aware of a crashing issue some of you have been reporting for ,” EA Help’s Twitter account tweeted. “We’re investigating and ask that you share your crash data reports when prompted.”

The tweet linked to an EA forum thread that aims to gather info from affected PS4 players about the issue. As of writing, the thread has 772 replies.

These significant technical issues have lead to some PS4 players demanding a refund for the game from PlayStation but, according to Variety, those players have had mixed success when it came to getting refunded.
