Gamers from many countries have to face a very difficult situation: since Tuesday morning, the servers from EA are down. This means that highly popular games like FIFA 20 and Battlefield 5, as well as the Origin service, are getting their availability affected.
However, there is also some good news for those affected by the situation: EA is well aware of the issue and it’s working to bring a solution, as the company announced on Twitter:
We're still working on the issues with our games and services. We don't have any updates right now, but we'll let you know when we have more info.

The famous company also announced the disabling of the creation of matches within Ultimate Team/FUT and Volta modes:
Hey folks, we have temporarily disabled FUT and VOLTA FOOTBALL match creation while we continue to investigate connectivity issues impacting EA titles.
10 million FIFA 20 players
The FIFA series is probably the best football simulation game series ever created. For the latest installment, FIFA 20, there are 10 million players that are competing within the online mode. There’s no wonder why the game reached such a staggering number, as it’s the best of the series yet. The developers are bringing a new FIFA game each year, and they’re updating with rosters for the teams, leagues, the teams themselves, and last but not least: with bug fixes and gameplay improvements.
Those willing to be playing FIFA 20 on their PCs, will have to meet at least the following system requirements:
- Operating System: Windows 7 at 64-bit.
- CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 3.1 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz.
- RAM: 8 GB Memory.
- GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory.
- GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850.
- DX: DirectX 11.
- HDD: 50GB Available Space.
It’s surprising and delightful for many people that the game still works on Windows 7. The operating system is officially dead since January, as Microsoft doesn’t provide any technical support anymore. It’s interesting to look further into how long games will still be running on Windows 7 as the majority of people prefer Windows 10.
As for the EA servers issue, we’re looking forward to receiving new information regarding a solution.
