EA has done something bad: it seems they joined Pokémon Go’s servers.
Jokes aside, Origin server is down and it’s impossible to login ingame.
Update: The issue is now solved and we can login in the game normally.
Animation on Fox just posted a video an hour ago showing Homer playing Pokémon Go, the new app by Niantic, where you can catch Pokémon around the world in real life, that has become popular in this days.
But now, a big issue has occured over in the game.
Pokémon Go is notoriously having big problems with the server (expecially this afternoon) and showing this screen to its users:
While Pokémon Go’s problems are now solved, EA just got this big issue: users can’t login to the game after recieving a kick out.
This is happening because Origin’s server is offline.
It’s possible the group that DDOSsed Pokémon Go’s servers, did in fact DDOS Origin’s server.
Update: An EA forum member just posted this:
“Spoke to EA. They are aware and hoping this can be fixed within a few hours. Major issue though as the servers are down for many EA games. They can’t guarantee fix time, but people have been called in to work on the weekend.”
Update 2: The message just changed to reflect the Origin server going down.
Whenever the problem is fixed or we’ve more informations, we’ll update this post. In the meantime have a good evening. LetsPlayNintendoITA out.
