Apex Legends, FIFA 20 Servers Down Due To EA Games Outage [Update]
Some EA games are currently experiencing issues.
EA is currently experiencing server issues, which is impacting a number of the publisher's games, including Apex Legends and FIFA 20. The EA Help Twitter account acknowledged the troubles, tweeting, "We're looking into issues with our websites, games, and services." [Update: EA says its servers are now back online, so you should be able to resume playing games as per usual. If you were upset about the downtime, at least it brought with it word about a cool new Apex Legends event that's on the way.]

EA hasn't provided a time frame for when these issues could be resolved, but the company says it will "be back with updates as [it has] them." We'll continue to update this story as more information becomes available. The latest update comes from the FIFA Mobile account, which says that login issues have been resolved, so you should be able to at least enter the game.

The FIFA Direct Communications Twitter account had previously acknowledged the issues, tweeting, "We are aware of the complaints around connecting to EA servers and are actively investigating. Match creation has been temporarily disabled to prevent disconnects during this time."
This is the second major server outage to impact EA games this month, and it comes shortly after Apex Legends kicked off its fourth season, Assimilation, which introduced a new playable character--Revenant--and lots of other content to the battle royale shooter. Star Wars Battlefront II recently received a major update of its own, but it is likewise being impacted by the ongoing server issues.
