It is Saturday morning, you wake up and expect to play FIFA 15 but end up finding the EA servers down today on Feb 14. This is the situation for many of Product Reviews readers across the UK right now, as we have been informed by email in the last few minutes.
The FIFA 15 problems started early on Saturday in the UK, or for late night gamers in the United States. While there were a few reports coming in on Twitter about server issues in the US, this outage seems to be focused in Europe with Germany and the UK being most hit.
We have investigated official support channels for EA and FIFA 15, although the only reports about problems talk about “issues affecting the FUT Store”. This glitch took place more than 15 hours ago, so it cannot be related to the problems hitting EA and FIFA 15 servers right now.
Are you able to play FIFA 15 online today and if not, what location are services down for you on Feb 14? We have contacted EA Sports FIFA on Twitter and EA directly, although there hasn’t been a response at this time.
We have included some tweets above left on Twitter a few moments ago, which reveal players trying to find out exactly what’s going on with EA servers right now. As you can see, it looks like this is EA server problems and impacting more than just FIFA 15. Battlefield and Madden have also been mentioned.
Update: EA Support issued a statement late last night explaining the “FIFA Ultimate Team Transfer Market will be inaccessible via the Web and Companion Apps”. They mentioned that this will be the case, “until further notice”, as they are performing “important maintenance”.
