Although, there is no official report on why its happening but Anthem digital copies that were sold on the PlayStation store are affected. It has been reported that sometimes the bug causes the game to crash and you end back on the Dashboard. The second and worse scenario reported is that the bug causes the Ps4 to crash and turn off after running Anthem.

EA has announced on their official Twitter page that they are investigating the problem and asking users to share their crash reports.

Can PS4 get bricked by running Anthem?

Anthem digital copy causes PS4 to crash in a way that it’s like the power is suddenly cut off. This is something that causes the PS4 to run a hardware scan when turned on after just like when the power cord is pulled with turning of PS4. Now, this is not recommended but the reports of it bricking PS4 is inaccurate. The post on Reddit that claimed that PS4 got bricked by Anthem has now been closed by admins.
