Electronic Arts technicians are working to resolve the situation and the hope is that within a few hours everything will return to normal. Fifa 20 and Apex Legends have been down for more than six hours now.

We don't know at the moment what is causing such serious problems with Fifa 20, Apex Legends and all the games on Origin. The certainty is that the Electronic Arts servers are unreachable.

The situation around 12:00 seemed to be back to normal, but from 13:00 onwards have returned to increase the reports from users. At 16:00 the servers were back online, but only for a few minutes. In fact, since 16:30 the reports on are back to increase, as you can see from the graph on the site.

Most likely the stress that have been subjected to the servers of Electronic Arts in this period may be one of the factors that led Fifa 20 to be down. We will continue to follow the situation and keep you updated.
