While we're sure not every player will undergo performance capture, the data EA obtain can be used to make improvements to the entire game.

No, the Hypermotion Technology in FIFA 22 will only feature in the PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia versions of the game.

The previous-gen versions of the game will run under a different engine more in line with that of FIFA 21. It's curious that the PC version of FIFA 22 will not contain Hypermotion Technology, but PC players should be used to being an afterthought by now.
