    I received the below email supposedly from EA. It has one of account names in it. If you look at the bottom left, that looks like a redirect of the link my mouse is pointing to. Anyone else get this?

    Rename is coming soon.
    BY MATT PORTEREA has revealed that your Origin Account will be renamed to an EA Account over the coming weeks.

    According to EA, the switch will "better represent all of EA's games and services."

    Wish it signaled the death of the Origin platform and EAs willingness to put their products back onto other platforms like Steam and GOG, but I highly doubt it is.

    Thanks Frodo. I looked at UO.com but of course there wasn't anything there about any changes.

    I did too, but I'd also seen the gaming news sites reporting that the change was going in, so I didn't think anything of it.

    I got that Email too, but I didn't click on any links. But I never click on links in email's unless I know exactly who they are from.
