Anthem keeps eating up all the RAM and crashing

★★★★ Newbie

 i took a look at the system events and i keep seeing "Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: Anthem.exe (8428) consumed 12094304256 bytes"  seems like anthem has a memory leak or just eating up all the RAM which is why i suspect a lot of people are crashing just like me.

 

maybe increasing the paging file will work but hopefully it gets patched soon

 

500 ssd

9700K 

16 GB RAM 

2070 rtx

That's how Just Cause 3 was too, only it wasn't a triple A title with tons of hype and 5 years of development. I play console now, which usually means a seamless gaming experience - except with Anthem, of course.

Anthem memory leak

★★★★ Novice

I would like to report a memory leak issue with anthem.

The loads in at 8gb of system ram, and keeps climbing untill it has used all available ram and causes a crash to desktop.

I had it happen 4 times before i reached out to eahelp on twitter, and while troubleshooting and chatting it happened and i managed to document it with the attached images twice.

Thank you to Logan at EAhelp for taking me seriously and sticking through all the troubleshooting.

Issue is not resolved but it feels good to have ones issue acknowledged after having had this issie across two system configurations, 4 windows reinstalls, countless ddu, ccleaner etc etc since launch. Anyone who has crash to desktop or hung device please download fpsmonitor or some overlay and keep an eye on your ram and vram.

EA/Bioware please fix this, it is not healthy for my pc.
