It appears all of EA’s servers are down and have been down for over 10 hours. The out­age is affect­ing sev­er­al games, includ­ing Apex Leg­ends, FIFA 20 and Bat­tle­field 5.

They start­ed look­ing into reports of play­ers not able to con­nect to online ser­vices, access Ori­gin or EA Help around 2:00 a.m. ET. Short­ly after tweet­ing there was an issue, EA stat­ed they had resolved the prob­lems with both EA and EA Help. 

How­ev­er, it appears they were hasty in their efforts, as play­ers were still inform­ing them they could­n’t access online EA titles. The EA Help Twit­ter account quick­ly repost­ed the same mes­sage when they first encoun­tered the issue. 

Sev­er­al hours lat­er, they still could­n’t get con­nec­tiv­i­ty back to the impact­ed EA titles. The FIFA Direct Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Twit­ter account post­ed they’re tem­porar­i­ly dis­abling FUT and VOLTA FOOTBALL match cre­ation while they inves­ti­gate the prob­lem. They also asked users to “stay tuned” to the Twit­ter thread for updates.

It’s unclear what caused the serv­er out­age or if it’s just a capac­i­ty issue, since a major­i­ty of peo­ple around the world are stuck a home due the pandemic.
