A small percentage of Xbox 360 owners have reported running into freezing issues during co-op matches of Starbreeze’s just released Syndicate reboot.
The EA Forums started receiving complaints soon after the title’s launch, with nearly all players reporting problems while active in co-op play.
The troubles are apparently stemming from the use of XBL Party Chat and how that affects the game’s default chat.
"If you’re experiencing freezing during a multiplayer match this may be due to a conflict between XBL Party Chat and the default in-game chat," an EA rep stated toShacknews."We’ve sent this issue on to the team and they will look further into it, but in the meantime try jumping out of your Party Chat and using the in-game channel to see if this fixes the issue."
