FIFA 20, Apex Legends Servers Down As EA Games Suffer Connectivity Issues
EA is "aware of the connectivity problems" for games like FIFA.
Update: EA's servers appear to be improving, according to the latest statement from the company. On Twitter, it said it's seeing "some recovery to connectivity," although it seems like you might still encounter issues if you're jumping into games like FIFA 20 and Apex Legends right now.
We are seeing some recovery to connectivity for our games and https://t.co/FsLr81tLiC. We are still working to get everything back up to normal. We'll continue to post progress here.— EA Help (@EAHelp) October 7, 2019
Original Story: EA is experiencing a server outage impacting some of its online games including FIFA 20, Battlefield 5, and Apex Legends. In a tweet, the company said it is aware of connectivity problems with its games and is working to address them.
We are aware of connectivity problems with our games. We'll keep you up to date on progress here. Thanks for your reports.— EA Help (@EAHelp) October 7, 2019
In a follow-up, the company also said some users may be experiencing issues with contacting its help resources, which could prevent players from sending reports. That could be a byproduct of users attempting to send reports, especially since games like FIFA are top sellers in some regions.
The nature of the outage is unknown. Apex Legends players, at least, appear to be getting an error code 100 or 103, which prevents users from signing in to their EA account.
