@SatheA so you are saying if you leave the black screen there for long enough aka several minutes it will close?

The patch made this happen for me too. Before the patch the game would close properly.

Yes but it's random. Sometimes it closes, other times it just doesn't

Same here. I'm on Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 1809 build 17763.346. Nvidia GTX 960 4GB, 8GB system RAM AMD FX-8350 8-core @4 GHz, 7200 RPM HDD. Hangs at shutdown with black screen, have to use alternate shutdown methods such as Alt-F4 or Task Manager

Same for me.

Maybe its just another loading screen to round things up.

Further experience: I thought - wrongly - I had a work-around. Choosing the option to go to the main menu and then exiting worked...once. This one time using this method the game shut down normally. The next time I tried it, endless hang on a black screen. Alt-F4 closed the black screen and Task Manager showed Anthem was still running. Killed the Anthem process, and discovered Origin was hung as well. Killed Origin process and that finally returned my pc to normal, releasing about 4 GB of RAM and cpu usage to idle speeds.

Same here, 4K resolution, must End Task to close out of Anthem. Occurred after patch.
