EA Sports promises less hacking issues with FIFA 13

Ultimate Team DLC will be safer this time around

EA has made a pledge to FIFA 13 gamers that they are doing everything they can to ensure that hacking issues that affected FIFA 12 will not rear their ugly head again.

Frank Gibeau, the head of EA Labels has moved to assure gamers that they are expending a large amount of resources on preventing hacks aimed at the Ultimate Team mode DLC for FIFA 13.

He explained, "We learned a lot from the experience. A lot of companies are suffering from this right now. There's a lot of sophisticated hacking happening in the gaming industry and it's a continuous battle. We take it very seriously, put a lot of resources on it. The learning from the FIFA example last year has been incorporated this year. There's some incremental and additional things. I don't want to get too detailed because I don't want to tip our hand. Rest assured, we take it very seriously."

"You're never going to win this battle," Gibeau added. "The moment you declare victory, somebody will walk in and show you didn't. So you have to continuously stay on top of it and, most importantly, keep account integrity the first and foremost issue."
