EA hasn't provided any other reason behind the move, but they did say that the change from 'Origin' to 'EA Account' will happen "in the coming weeks". Gamers will be able to continue to use their existing login ID and password once the change happens. With more than 50 million users on Origin, this is a big move for EA.
