EA’s FIFA 21 source code alongside its Frostbite engine and more have been hacked.
Hackers managed to steal a grand total of 780GB of company data and have claimed to have taken source code for FIFA 21 and its matchmaking server, source code for Frostbite, and code for proprietary EA frameworks and software development kits (SDKs).
The publisher has confirmed a data breach has taken place but no specific details were disclosed.
An EA spokesperson said:
We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen.
No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy. Following the incident, we’ve already made security improvements and do not expect an impact on our games or our business. We are actively working with law enforcement officials and other experts as part of this ongoing criminal investigation.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
