FIFA 21 Will Not Support Cross-Play, EA Confirms

In somewhat surprising news, EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will not support cross-play. After the news a few weeks ago that fellow EA title Need for Speed Heat was introducing the feature, FIFA fans thought it was only a matter of time. FIFA 21 is due to release in early October.

FIFA 21 Will Not Support Cross-Play, EA ConfirmsIn a recent tweet, EA has confirmed that FIFA 21 will not support cross-play in any kind, including playing with players within the same console family. The FIFA Direct Communication Twitter account announced the news in response to a question from the FUT weekly podcast.

 

This news comes as a huge disappointment to the FIFA community. Recently, cross-play has become a staple in most multiplayer games and has even recently been introduced in fellow EA title Need for Speed Heat, so it comes as a major surprise that EA will not include it in of its biggest franchise.

In more positive news, FIFA 21 will support Dual Entitlement – EA’s version of smart delivery. Players who but the game on PS4 and Xbox One will be entitled to the PS5 and Xbox Series X version for free when it releases.
