EA Sports has announced that FIFA 21 will not feature crossplay between consoles. Furthermore, there will be no crossplay even between console generations.
The news came via the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter handle in response to a question asked on the FUT Weekly Podcast. While crossplay won’t be available in any capacity, players will be able to carry forward their FUT progress to next gen consoles.
The tweet by FIFA Direct Communication handle said, “You won’t be able to play across console generations or cross-play in #FIFA21. However, you will be able to carry over your FUT progression from PS4 to PS5 and Xbox 1 to Xbox Series X.”
A Twitter account titled @FIFA21Betaa tweeted out a bunch of leaked gameplay videos and screenshots of FIFA 21. The ‘FIFA EA PLAY’ watermark suggests that the footage has been leaked from one of EA’s preview events.
