Summarize your bug When playing occasionally all of the sound cuts out from the game this includes any other audio like spotify/YouTube this is then fixed by restarting the game.
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I think that the bug is coming from having a Video open on another monitor just messing around in missions/free play and having that extra 1 thing open playing audio.
What happens when the bug occurs? All sound including other sound from music etc cuts out and will refuse to make any sound until you close the game
What should be happening instead? Sound should be playing.

This is a bug that has happened to me about 4 times today and started when I started watching videos alongside playing anthem on another screen. I would play the game in Border less windowed and have something open alongside. This bug has happened maybe twice before today once I believe I was watching a video and the other time was at the start of the game release when i only had Spotify open. It stops you from being able to listen to anything on your computer it doesn't just affect your game and the only fix I have found is to close the game. Then the sound of everything comes back and you can play again. I first thought you had to restart your computer but that isn't necessary.
