Anthem Dev Responds To PS4 Shutdown Issues
Given its under-promising launch, Anthem has had a bit of a slow start coming out of the gate, with many players complaining about lengthy load times, game breaking bugs, and more. Thankfully, BioWare has been for the most part on top of things and has released multiple patches to help address the issues and keep things running smoothly as players get used to their epic Javelins. Now, BioWare has responded to the recently discovered crash issues that have been plaguing parts of the PS4 player base.
The statement from BioWare comes by way of Twitter, with employee Chad Robertson notifying players that they’ve “identified several causes for the temp power-down crash some PS4 users experienced.” Robertson goes on to state that fixes for the “top issues” will be coming soon, and that in the meantime those that experience the issue “can manually power down and restart it” without risk to the PS4.
After thorough review, we have not encountered an instance where Anthem has “bricked” a PS4 console. If you are experiencing anything different, please reach out to @EAHelp so we can track the incident and investigate. Thanks for your patience.

Robertson also addresses another player issue that alleged that in some cases Anthem had “bricked” a PS4 console. He stated that the team had “not encountered an instance where Anthem has “bricked” a PS4 console,” and that if any players were experiencing anything like that, to reach out to EA. Here’s hoping that the upcoming patch arrives quickly, as Anthem as a whole deserves more than what its growing pains suggest.
Anthem is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
