First of all I want to say I really like the game, I don't really care about lack of content because I know that content will come in future as they planned, BUT

I am really worried about game optimization. I don't have a big build for gaming, as you can see, but what I am going to write is a problem that effects also many friends of mine with stronger build (2080ti, i9 9900k, 65gb Ram ecc). 


I just noticed a problem about Anthem. At the beginning I thought it was just an error in game itself that was using 100%cpu (pretty strange) and from 70 to 100% Gpu (this one is legit). After a while I noticed that when I close Anthem game and launch any other game in my library the game was running pretty bad, I mean around the half of avarage fps I usually have on that game. I got this problem only when launching a game after playing anthem. I solved this problem restarting my pc.


I think that Anthem has a ghost process or something that open sometimes when we launch the game itself, and this affects Anthem with freezes, and fps drop, and all the other problem foun in the topic of "100% cpu usage", but affects also other games because the PC seems working on something else (like running 2 games for example). 

I think they should really look into this problem because compromises the game experience.
