Yes, easy outs are hard. Not really hard but hard enough to be a PITA. You might be able to thermally shock it a couple of times and get it to loosen. heat it with a torch then chill it with some water. The good thing is that since they are left hand threaded, a right hand drill bit might help twist it out. A carbide drill bit should dig into it but don't break off the carbide in the easy out.
