Eurogamer recently released a report on how players can bypass the keyword filter of fifa21 and display offensive club and player names in the professional club mode of the game. Examples include promoting racism.
Players can report these illegal names in the game, but many players feedback that such names are still common in the game. EA revealed to European gamers that since the release of fifa21, they have banned more than 9000 accounts and issued more than 25000 warnings related to offensive content.
EA outlined the company’s current strategy in a related statement, and they plan to adopt new technologies to solve this problem in the next few months: “EA and EA Sports are committed to making our gaming experience fun, fair and comfortable. We will filter the content edited by users in game chat, EA account, player and team name to prevent the disrespectful text that may be used to belittle or harass. “
