Electronic Arts users are taking their questions on Twitter wondering why they are unable to connect to the servers. The service interruption started about two hours ago and since then users have been reporting the issue to the official support Twitter account of Electronic Arts.

In a reply to one of those tweets, the EA support account acknowledged that there is an issue with Origin and they are working to solve it. The same account also tweeted that “Servers are back for console users, and it should be back soon for Origin too.” However, there hasn’t been an official tweet specifically acknowledging the issue or revealing what’s really going on.

Remember, EA has a long history of server downtime sometimes due to technical issues or cyber attacks however It is still unclear if EA is suffering a cyber attack or it is some kind of technical glitch. Either way, we will keep you updated in case the company comes up with an official statement or clarification.
