FIFA has been cross platform for a very long time, however crossplay has always been but a dream.

Aside from the odd exclusive, cross-platform games are common. Game developers will go the extra mile to make sure their latest title is perfect for every platform (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo, Stadia).

Makes sense, they earn more money by doing so and it gives everyone a chance to play the latest football game.

 FIFA 23 has not been announced officially, so we cannot definitively say FIFA 23 is cross platform but it is an extremely safe bet.

On the other hand, whether or not FIFA 23 will be crossplay is another story entirely.

Is FIFA 23 cross platform?

FIFA 23 will be cross platform, including the older generation consoles, but only in limited game modes.

FIFA 22 was available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia, so it is almost a certainty we will see the same again for FIFA 23.

Is FIFA 23 crossplay?

Crossplay has been something fans have wanted with FIFA since the beginning of online gaming and the early PS/Xbox console wars.

Friends want to play each other, regardless of their chosen platform, so now that the cross-play rumours are true we are in for a real. Controversially though, Pro Clubs will not support cross play this time around.

One thing that adds a bit of credibility to the rumors is the FIFA 22 cross-play test.

EA stated:

We’re eager to let our players connect across multiple platforms, and in the near future we’ll be testing Cross-play functionality in Online Seasons and Online Friendlies on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia versions of EA SPORTS FIFA 22. We’re looking forward to seeing your feedback on Answers HQ and we’ll cover everything you need to know about Cross-play in this article. We’ll let you know when this Cross-play test kicks off on EAFIFADirect as well as in-game.

When crossplay was introduced to FIFA 22, it gave players the ability to play with players from different platforms.

The test was available during online sessions and online friendlies. The test was available to all players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.

If you are on an older generation of consoles (PS4, Xbox One) it is uncertain whether you would be able to take advantage of crossplay features.

However, those on the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia will have full crossplay support on all game modes, excluding Pro Clubs. The Ultimate Team market for the next-gen consoles is going to be combined for the first time. It’s hard to know what this will do to the market, but it will be exciting to see.

According to respected FUT leaker ‘DonkTrader’, the crossplay feature can be turned on/off .

Why FIFA 23 should bring full crossplay support to the table

Anyone no matter if they are on Xbox, PlayStation, or PC should be able to play together.

There are no advantages when playing on different platforms for this game, so let’s open it up and send the FIFA game franchise as we know it off with a bang.

Will FIFA 23 Pro Clubs feature crossplay?

FIFA 23 is set to feature Pro Clubs once again, with this game mode being hugely popular amongst groups of friends, and only grew during the pandemic.

Pro Clubs allows you to create a Virtual Pro player to play on the pitch with friends and crossplay support would make that all the sweeter. That is why it is such a shame that the only game mode that won’t feature crossplay in FIFA 23 will be Pro Clubs. Although EA have said they are hoping to bring crossplay to the game as soon as possible.
