Same thing here, is happening since about 7-10 days now everytime I exit Anthem.
In case it's important, I use a PC with:
32GB RAM 3,2GHz
Question for everyone who is getting black screen hang on exit:
Are you clicking "Exit to Desktop" with mouse?
If so, what happens if you don't touch your mouse in the menus?
Hit esc, then q or e to get to settings, then arrow keys and enter to get to Exit to Desktop.
Does it still hang?
No crash on Alt-Tab mostly. Alt-F1 using Origin overlay is ok …. but game hangs on exit.
When you look in Task Manager under Origin there is a child process for Anthem that does not close. I'm tipping this is the issue and it's a problem with the crappy Origin programming.
BTW is the "Origin using extra CPU unless you have it open at settings" still an issue or has that actually been fixed?
There are PAGES of people on Reddit having this issue with crashing and it seems to be getting worse. I never had it then after the most recent patch it was occurring frequently. Now it's every time I've played for a while.
