EA says investigating data breach

(Reuters) -Videogame publisher Electronic Arts Inc said on Thursday that it was investigating a recent incident of intrusion into its network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen.

Vice’s Motherboard earlier reported that hackers had stolen a wealth of data, including source codes for popular title “FIFA 21” and source code and tools for Frostbite engine, a software development toolset for game creators.

“No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy,” EA said in a statement.

Shares of the company fell nearly 2% to $143.50 after the report.
