Games are for everyone, and building healthy communities free of harassment and bullying is a critical part of the game playing experience. Unfortunately, online toxicity and bullying have become a regular issue for players, with nearly 60 percent of players stating they have been bullied in an online game according to anti-bullying organization Ditch the Label.
Building healthy communities is EA's responsibility. Our mission is to produce programs, policies and platforms that create safe, inclusive and fulfilling communities for all. We are committed to the challenge and look forward to working with you to make that happen.
Combating in-game bullying and toxicity is a major focus for us across all of EA. We want to build on existing efforts and increase our contribution to our community through actions that make a difference. Our commitments include:
At EA PLAY 2019 we convened the Building Healthy Communities Summit, welcoming 200+ Game Changers and industry experts for an open discussion about online toxicity.
