Kayron666, I know it's late but I had the EXACT same issue. You need to set Origin to offline mode, launch the game which will ask you to sign in and activate the license, the game should launch in offline mode, now exit the game, go back to Origin and set it back to Online mode. You should be able to launch the game normally now.


I have had this same problem with previous Origin games (Battlefield 4 and Hardline) I hope this works for you.


I spent over 2 hours with Origin support and not 1 of the 5 different techs could help me out. I use to never have a problem with Origin but lately this * has been the cause of so many headaches.


Good Luck!
