According to Vice, EA has suffered a massive data theft at the hands of hackers. Some 780GB of data has reportedly been stolen from EA's servers, including the source code for FIFA 21, code for FIFA's matchmaking servers, the Frostbite engine, software development kits (SDKs), and more. Sources provided screenshots of the hackers offering up the code for sale on various "underground hacking forums."

The hackers reportedly shared a "small selection of screenshots claiming to demonstrate their access to EA data." However, they did not distribute any of the data itself. There was no word shared by Vice on how much the hackers are looking for in this sale of the illegally obtained data.

In a statement provided to Vice, EA did confirm that they have suffered a data breach.

"We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen," an EA spokesperson told Motherboard in a statement. "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."
