EA Login Issues Spread Beyond Anthem to FIFA, Battlefield 5, and Battlefront 2

When it rains it pours.

More EA games appear to be suffering from online issues following earlier reports that Anthem's servers hit max capacity. Players are reporting issues logging in to play EA titles like FIFA 19, Battlefield 5, and Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

EA launched the VIP demo for Anthem this morning for customers who pre-ordered the game or subscribed to EA's Access service. Within minutes of going live, Anthem servers were reportedly maxed out, preventing players from logging into a session. EA's official support Twitter account said that developers were working hard to fix the problem and get the servers running for more players to join.

The problem with EA's online servers seems to extend beyond Anthem as EA's support account later tweeted that it is looking into login issues across all of its games and services. Some players wondered if Anthem's servers were affecting other EA titles, but EA reps say it's a login issue, not a server-based one.

As of this writing EA's Anthem status page says servers are up and running, and EA's help account says login services are recovering. However not everything is in the clear yet as service issues persist for Xbox One users.
