PlayStation 5 and PC Madden 24 gamers are dealing with annoying popping audio and disappearing sound channels within the recreation proper now. A publish on the Madden subreddit says that, throughout video games, the audio is reducing out on half their soundbar, then returning with some static, seemingly taking place each time a play ends and a cutscene reveals.
Our personal Nilay Patel says he’s having the identical problem on his PS5 via a Dolby Atmos rig, even when he switches the output to simply stereo. All through the Reddit publish, different customers say they hear loud popping sounds every few seconds or after they pause the sport. The sound is outwardly dangerous sufficient that one person is apprehensive it’s going to damage their sound system by taking part in the sport. One other says the audio is popping and reducing out in the correct channel of their headset.
For PC customers a minimum of, somebody discovered a hilariously complex workaround that entails turning… mainly every thing off. I’m not capable of check this proper now (and Nilay’s obtained the PS5 model of the sport, so he can’t both), however commenters on the video say it really works.
We’ve reached out to Digital Arts to see if it’s engaged on a repair. We’ll replace right here if we get a response.
