Other stolen info includes software development kits (SDKs), debug tools, and API keys. In a statement, an EA spokesperson said that the company is actively working with enforcement officials and other experts as part of this ongoing criminal investigation.
As first reported by VICE, hackers have infiltrated Electronic Arts (EA). They have stolen around 780 GB of data, including the matchmaking server code for FIFA 21 and the source code for the proprietary Frostbite game engine.
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.
While it’s a small breath of relief that no player data has affected, this doesn’t bode well for EA. The data is reportedly being sold on a underground hacking forum—some pages are not publicly viewable.
