For some reason, Origin accounts will henceforth be EA accounts

Remember when EA turned all your log-ins into Origin IDs? Now the opposite is happening.


Your Origin Account is soon to be known as your EA Account, according to an email being sent out to members.

“In the coming weeks your Origin Account will be renamed to an EA Account to better represent all of EA’s games and services,” the email warned.

“Your account identity, preferences, and order history will remain unchanged. You will continue to use this account and the same login credentials to access all EA games, web sites, and services, including Origin.”

An EA representative told PC Gamer that this will have no effect on users.

“We have changed our player account branding from Origin to EA to represent all of the EA properties and services our players use to interact with us,” the company said.

Oh. No word yet on whether the Origin PC storefront and client will be renamed, although it seems unlikely.

Well, as long as all my Dragon Age console profiles are still safe, everything is okay.
