In addition to paid upgrades to new generation machines, Electronic Arts has announced that it does not wish to integrate cross-play functionality into FIFA 21. FIFA 21 will be out on October 9 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
We learned that it would not be possible to evolve for free from the PS4 version to the PS5 version (or Xbox One to Series X) of the publisher’s next games. EA Games explained that it would be necessary to buy the titles to benefit from them on a new generation, with the rather improbable argument that the games were developed from the start on different bases.
New setback for players: FIFA 21 will not integrate crossplay functionality. The brand specifies in a tweet: “You will not be able to play on multiple generations of consoles, or even across different platforms. However, you will be able to transfer your FUT progress from the PS4 to the PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X”.
Remember that EA had also announced that the PC version of the game would be based on the PS4 / Xbox One version and not on the new generation title. The situation around the game is raising more and more rumors from fans, who will unfortunately have no solid alternative to boycott the title since the main competitor of FIFA, PES has chosen to take a break this year. FIFA 21 will be out on October 9 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
