Electronic Arts game Anthem is bricking Sony PlayStation 4 consoles in The Lounge Posted March 11, 2019 Yea, I've been keeping track on this. At first EA said it was "just" looking into, but soon after they said EA and Sony are working together to try and solve it. From what I am hearing, a game can't just brick or crash a console like that. It's something between the game's coding and the firmware on the console. Sony will probably have to fix it with a firmware update.
