EA is one of the leading companies involved in online gaming and has been for many years. It is one of the giants when it comes to MMORPG’s and has developed its own niche in this field. However, in September 2021, one of their games “Sims Medieval” was hacked and source code was stolen. This resulted in financial losses for the company, which they had to sort out and repair. This led to the creation of SimCity HD by Electronic Arts.

EA has a very dedicated following and there are many people who play their games either because they are addicted or simply because they like them. It seems that they have a lot of fans around the world, which is surprising considering how little they actually sell. Despite this, EA has managed to keep their games as popular as ever, releasing new games at a regular rate.
One of their most popular games is Cityville, and one of the things that made this game so popular in the first place was its use of the Origin system. This allowed the game to be hosted on Origin, which has become one of the most popular online gaming platforms. When this happened, the Origin system allowed anyone to create source code for any game that they wanted to play. In this case, anyone who wished to play Cityville could do so. This meant that any person who had the original game could simply hack the game and make their own modifications to it.
The best thing about this however, is that it wasn’t the giant that got hacked, but rather it was the game developer. Electronic arts were not involved in the hacking. The original developer had paid a large sum of money to EA to host the game on Origin. Because of this, EA had to pay a considerable sum of money to the developer to secure their copyright and source code. As you can see, being a big company such as Electronic arts, they are more than happy to pay someone a lot of money (EA pays very well) to host a game on their system.
Now you may be thinking to yourself, well isn’t it just like EA paying someone to host their game for them? You would be correct up to a point, but there is more to this story. Not long after this occurred, hackers started posting their own modified copies of the original game for sale on various auction sites. Believe it or not, this was very beneficial to gamers because now everyone was able to download these and play them immediately.

This caused everyone to clamor for the best version of the game. It also changed the face of online gaming, as there was no longer one company that held the monopoly on the system. Instead, there were several different companies that were creating games for people to play. This competition was very good for the consumers, because it forced the companies to create better games that consumers wanted. It is truly one of the best things to have happened in a long time for the gaming industry.
To top it all off, EA made one last move to try to regain control of the situation. They hired someone to create a game called Fall of Rome and put it on the market before releasing the next Mass Effect. Needless to say, it didn’t do well. EA had no other choice, and they were forced to turn around and sell their system.
So if you ever wanted to play EA Sports Games online, you will probably never again. The gaming giant was hacked. Not only did they have to sell their system, they lost their job as well. All hope is not lost though. There are still some great gaming companies out there, and there are ways to get to them!
