Why has FIFA 22 gone down?

The outage is the result of planned maintenance work on the game’s servers, according to EA Sports, which makes the FIFA games.

When game-makers make major improvements to their services, they frequently shut down servers for a few hours to make the changes.

The tactic is regularly employed by FIFA as well as Fortnite-maker Epic Games.

EA said that it expects the scheduled maintenance to last from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. UK time (2 a.m. to 5 a.m. EST).

“During this time, you may be disconnected or unable to access online services and modes, including FUT,” EA said.

Every game in the franchise released since FIFA 15 is affected across all platforms.

When did FIFA 22 go down?

Fans of FIFA 22 are unable to play the game’s popular Ultimate Team mode this morning after it was hit by an hours-long outage.
The popular football simulator went down around 7:00 a.m. UK time (2:00 a.m. EST), according to online outage trackers.

Reports on social media suggest that the downtime is leaving players unable to connect to FIFA Ultimate Team.

Screenshots shared online show an error message that appears when people attempt to connect to the online multiplayer mode.
The message reads: “We are sorry but there has been an error connecting to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. You will be returned to the FIFA 22 Main Menu.”

Hundreds of people have reported the problem to the website DownDetector, which monitors online outages.

Half of those reports point the finger at server issues, while 39 per cent of complaints are related to the game’s login system.Frustrated FIFA fans took to Twitter to bemoan the unexpected outage.
One person tweeted a screenshot of the error message with the caption: “Bro wtf is going on fifa is my life I don’t know what to do without FIFA.”
Another said: “FIFA 22 servers are down.”
