We are in an era where online connectivity is crucial to the gaming experience. So, the Madden 24 server outage has left several players feeling disconnected and frustrated.

Reports are pouring in from players who are encountering error messages that read, ‘Sorry, it appears EA servers are currently down.’

Therefore, the lack of access to the game’s online features has hindered players from engaging in multiplayer matches, participating in events, or even accessing important game data.

Folk paid $100 to get Madden early only for EA to take the servers down for 7 hours.That’s Scammy Davis Jr.

So tired of EA having the rights to Madden preorder so I can play early and it’s down for the next 7hrs !! You had a year to improve on a game you’ve been making for years and can’t even get a working game on time.

It looks like the outage you are experiencing is due to this ongoing maintenance. It is scheduled to take place from 1:00 AM ET to 6:00 AM ET:
