Origin and EA status for servers

When there’s Origin login problems, or the EA servers are not available and go down then you can be sure this status will hit many games. Thanks to the reach EA has with both sports games and other titles, if the servers are not working it will hit franchises like FIFA, Madden, NHL, and many more.


If EA servers are down again, then you will see status reports below and of course add yours with the game name that’s not working along with your region. This will reveal a pattern in some cases, or at the very least show what games are impacted by the latest outage.

One of EA’s biggest first person shooter games is Battlefield and as such, any major downtime with EA servers and Origin can certainly impact this title as well. Official status updates for Xbox and PlayStation can be access via this page, so leave yours and connect with others through official channels.

  • Holly Bolinger

    i cant play sims. Whats going on? I have been waiting all day for the problem to be solved. status update of whats going on please?

  • candesco

    I know this post was made 2 years ago, but wanted to clarify that Steam does have problems as well. Also, Ubisoft has it’s own platform too. Unfortunately today the day games are played either through steam, origin or uplay. Yes, origin ain’t the most stable application around, but it’s not that horrible like games for windows live from microsoft. That one was really the worst application around. I have GTA IV on disc and that dreaded gfwl is shipped with it. Fallout 3 has it too. Couldn’t even get the dlc’s for fallout 3, because my language wasn’t supported.

  • candesco

    The sale will end today at 10:00 PST (19:00 CET), unless EA decide to extend it. Though it already was extended by one day, as it was first at January 11.
    I’m also hoping that the stuff will be fixed soon and i’m still able to use the sale.

    HI, I just had some login problems with Origin. I fixed it by turning off my VPN client and restarting the VPN once I was logged in. Strange that it never happened before.

  • Eden Chisnall

    I play plants vs zombies garden ware fare 2 and it says that the severs are down I cant play multiplayer or occasionally cant even get on the game I hope they fix it soon :)

  • Mark Newell

    Boy I miss the days when you could by a game and actually own the disks and not have to rely on someone else to keep servers up. I hate this SAS model like steam and origin use. Why can’t we just go back the way it was, especially for computer gamers.

  • Ghost Girl

    Hi I tried to visit Origins page to see if I could access my Sims from there and it told me to download Origin again and now it works.
    I’m sorry if my spelling is bad I’m from Denmark :)

  • Matilda May

    can’t play dragon age QAQ when do the serves go back up?

  • santaster

    Is the EA servers being down causing not being able to start Origin? For me, when I open it its just a loading window that never seems to finish.

  • Eskimo

    seems to be back up for me

  • Otávio Caldini

    Down in Brazil as well. I can’t log to Origin “unvailable to log in” Can’t play any game. Funny EA.

  • lumen001

    Origin is the only steam rival and competition is good for the costumers.
    Don’t forget that free games, Trials, Access, Refund all this started with Origin!

  • Not Chinese

    been over 2 hours and nothing yet…

  • Not Chinese

    EVERYONE, every single PC player EVER wishes All EA games would be on steam. Origin should just shut down and bite the bullet.

  • Monty

    This shiet always happen whenever I want to play a game. It’s like if I’m bad luck, but dang man.. I can’t play madden17, nor battlefield4 online in Southern California. Always lacking on me. Gets me frustrating. No wonder why in first person shooting games EA is last to pick against all others smh. Connectivity.

  • http://batman-news.com/ Nicholas Wilson

    Can’t connect to ea server for Mass Effect 3

  • evilED

    Down in Australia too. Can’t login to Origin. Some people on Twitch are saying there may be another DDoS attack. Great. Just bought Battlefield 1 yesterday, and can’t play it. Awesome!

  • Brasilian American

    no, every origin game/service is down. including single player games, i was playing mass effect 3 and it kicked me out due to origin services being offline

  • Not Chinese

    Great, my sunday afternoon plan of Battlefield is gone. Origin is such garbage. This is by far not the first issue i’ve had with origin, and sadly I know it won’t be the last.

  • Andrew n/a

    hey i bet wolfenstein enemy territory is still up.. lol.. ea games greatest achievement..

  • Andrew n/a

    typical thought id have an hour playing battlefield.. well there goes that idea.. 3rd party login is a poor idea.
    like gamespy its just another cog in the machine to break.. and if origin decides to quit.. thats the end of all your online games.. just like gamespy.. this may take weeks to fix lol.. nice job guys….

  • M

    Time Origin just gives up.. hopeless client (can’t even do a basic lock to screen) just submit and move to Steam.
