Latest - Cross-play confirmed for FIFA 23!?

There has been a lot of speculation over the past few months as to whether FIFA 23 will have cross-play.

EA insider Tom Henderson, writing on the website Xfire, reported that FIFA 23 would include a number of never-before-seen options, including the first-ever support for cross-play.

The reliable Ultimate Team leaker FUT Sheriff has now backed this information up, stating that an official announcement from EA is imminent.

This effectively means that PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players will all be able to compete together in the same matches and tournaments.

This feature is one that is available on many video games such as Fortnite and fans have been crying out for it to arrive on FIFA for a while now.

Unfortunately, it looks like Ultimate Team will not be included in cross-play for FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Release Date

With the next game such a long way off we won’t see an official release date for many months, but we always have a rough idea of when the game will arrive.

FIFA 22 was fully launched on Friday, 1 October 2021, so if EA follows the same trend, then Friday, 30 September 2022 could be our release date next year.

This would mean early access for pre-orders from Tuesday, 27 September for those who buy the Ultimate Edition of the game.

The 10-hour EA Play trial usually offers players a limited number of hours of gaming too and goes live even earlier than pre-orders so expect to see that around a week before the full launch.
