Earlier this year, it was reported that FIFA 23 will feature cross-play for the first time in Ultimate Team history allowing players from all consoles to play against each other, according to Tom Henderson. Now, according to a leak by FutSheriff, it has been revealed that EA Sports will test cross-play for the first time in FIFA 22.
FIFA 22 to Test Cross-Play, According to FutSheriff
According to FutSheriff, cross-play will be tested in FIFA 22, but "probably won't be on Ultimate Team." It's unknown what game mode the new feature will be tested on-- it's possible that the cross-play will be tested in a mode like Pro Clubs or Volta.
With the news of cross-play being added to FIFA 23 came plenty of questions, such as how EA will handle hackers from PC possibly trying to do the same against console players, or how Division Rivals/FUT Champions will be adjusted for the new larger pool of players. EA will likely release a statement or pitch notes to introduce this concept to the FIFA community to try out soon, possibly as a closed beta or online non-Ultimate Team Kick-off style mode.
We have little information on when this new add-on to FIFA 22 may come, but it may take a while for EA Sports to set up. We will keep you updated with more news and confirmations of this leak as they are revealed.
