Users are tweeting that Electronic Arts (EA) servers are down — A recent tweet from EA says they are aware of the issue.

Electronic Arts (EA) users in Europe and the US are reporting that they are facing connectivity issues that won’t let them sign in, connect to the server or play games.

A tweet from EA shows that the company is aware of the issue.

“We are aware of the intermittent connectivity issues at present and are investigating. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

It is too early to comment if this is a technical issue or EA is suffering a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. In August this year, PoodleCorp group conducted a massive DDoS attack on EA servers forcing the service to go offline for hours.

Remember PoodleCorp did promise to DDoS BattleField servers on 21st October 2016, however, today is 20th October and one alleged member of PoodleCorp has already been arrested by the authorities.
