Having the same issue. Since updating the game today I'm stuck at the Connecting to Online Services screen. Seriously, fix your damn game!

8th of April 2019 Update just installed. Now I get the error message "connecting to online services". Prior to this update I never had this issue and I was able to access the game. I am playing on PC

Same problem.

 

Just finished the April 08 2019 UPDATE and now it sits forever on "Connecting to online services".

 

Playing on PC.

 

This is the buggiest game I've ever played.

For what I see on my friendlist, none of the Anthem players can join Anthem servers.
The problem seems to be correlated with the update

@Mrknock0ut27 I have the same problem now. After the last update of the game, I'm unable to enter and play. The same "Connecting To Online Services" is displayed.

Found that after I uninstalled the game and started re-downloading it.  Any idea why this link is not posted in any of the pinned guides?  It should be one the first things we check.

 

I also love that I have 150mbs symmetrical (and even with others streaming can get 125mbs), but Origin never goes above 20mbs.  This would not bother me, but Steam and GOG will download at 100mbs+.
