Electronic Arts Inc. said Thursday that hackers stole source code on its “FIFA 21” videogame.
The maker and publisher of popular franchises such as FIFA, The Sims and Madden NFL said player data wasn’t accessed.
“We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen,” a company spokeswoman said in a statement. “No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy.”
Electronic Arts said it has improved its security and doesn’t expect its business or games to be affected. The company also said that as part of the criminal investigation, it is working with experts and law enforcement.
Motherboard, the tech news outlet under Vice, earlier reported on the company being hacked.
