Does FIFA 23 Have Cross-Play?

To the joy of every FIFA 23 player in the world, yes, we can confirm, FIFA 23 is the very first game in the series that will have the cross-play feature, but there is a little twist to it. There are two separate cross-platform ways to play.

The first is for the “legacy” or “last gen” systems (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One). The second is for current gen systems (PC, Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S).

There will be some minor limitations to this feature on launch, but we expect EA to smooth things out promptly.

At launch, cross-platform will be active in:

  • Online Seasons (Co-Op Seasons being the exception)
  • FUT Division Rivals (not for Co-Op though)
  • Online Friendly matches,
  • FUT Play a Friend
  • FUT Online Friendlies (barring Co-Op)
  • FUT Champions
  • FUT Ultimate Online Draft

Cross-play is active by default and you can opt out whenever you want, for any or no reason at all.
