The audio cutting-out issue in F1 22 is one that, unfortunately, a lot of players seem to be encountering less than a week removed from its launch.

As reported by several players on the EA Answers HQ forums, the new problem causes players' audio to drastically stutter or even drop out entirely. Here's what you can do to fix the audio cutting-out issue in F1 22.

F1 22 Audio Stutter: How to Fix

For those on a Windows 10 PC, one method that seems to be working is going into the launcher in which you installed in and repairing the game's files:

  • On Steam, look for the "Verify integrity of game files" option
  • On the EA app, look for the "Repair" option
  • On the Xbox app, look for the "Verify and repair" option

For those on a Windows 10 PC, another method that seems to be working is disabling all outputs that you're not using while playing F1 22:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select "System"
  3. Select "Sound"
  4. Under the "Output" header, make sure your output device is the device you wish to hear the sound on
  5. Select "Manage sound devices"
  6. Under the "Output devices" header, click on and disable every other audio device that you are not using

Lastly, for those who use Windows Sonic for Headphones or Dolby Atmos for Windows, some are reporting that disabling those features while playing F1 22 seems to fix the issue as well.

Unfortunately, it does not seem that there are many workarounds known for those experiencing the issue on console just yet.

This is an issue that is widely being reported by F1 22 players at the moment, so hopefully, Codemasters and EA Sports can get this taken care of as soon as possible.


F1 22 was released worldwide for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC on July 1, 2022. EA Play (via Early Access Trial) and EA Play Pro subscribers, as well as those who purchase the Champions Edition, have had early access to the game since June 28.
