Late yesterday evening, the Electronic Arts server was down, resulting in offline games like Battlefield V, Apex Legends and of course FIFA 20.
The downtime of the EA servers lasted almost all night and even in the early hours of the morning or many disruptions occurred with continuous disconnections and lag. Now the problems have been definitively solved and the online infrastructure of Electronic Arts has become available and fully operational in every respect, as also underlined by the company with a Tweet. Fortunately, no disservices appear to have been recorded regarding the loss of data and all the progress achieved has been correctly archived and ready to be shown once they are back online.
Recently Electronic Arts ended up in the eye of the storm because of the leakage of the personal data of 1,600 FIFA players apparently stolen by a group of hackers exploiting the weaknesses of the company’s servers. After the down on October 7th Electronic Arts also worked on the security front to prevent such situations from occurring again.
At the time of writing, the EA servers are fully functional and it is possible to return to playing FIFA 20, Apex Legends, Madden NFL 20, Battlefield V and all other Electronic Arts games.
The connectivity problems with our games and https://t.co/FsLr81tLiC are fixed. Thanks for all the reports.
