FIFA Fans Furious Over FIFA 23 Cross-Play

EA announced that FIFA 23 will have cross-play when it releases this September. This is a first for the series, so it's a fairly big deal, yet the news has created some substantial backlash in the process. Fans were quick to notice that for some strange reason Pro Clubs is not included in cross-play support. Why isn't it included? Well according to EA, the process is too complicated.

"We want to ensure our product innovation is delivered at quality, and because of the technical intricacies of implementing cross-play, modes that pair players together such as Pro Clubs will not feature cross-play at this time," said EA of the decision.

Of course, Pro Clubs isn't the breadwinner when it comes to FIFA modes. EA doesn't reveal granular data, but everyone understands that Ultimate Team is the most popular mode and also the money maker. After this is probably Career Mode. That said, Pro Clubs does have its players, and these players aren't happy they are being left out of what is the "big new thing" with this year's game.

At the moment of publishing, EA hasn't responded to the backlash, which has been slowly growing over on Twitter and other parts of the Internet as players learn about the caveat. In fact, various hashtags involving the news have been trending the past couple of hours.

all games gonna be cross play soon

and because PC is more easily hacked


robably because PC is more easil hacked


Probably because PC is more easil hacked and will result in people offering services like cod.


whats the issue? crossplay is a godsend for pc players, cant tell you how freaking explain how happy i am that splitgate is on consoles with crossplay as well, before it was impossible to play that game legit but now with crossplay i dont even run into cheaters same with cod mw remake
crossplay is a godsend every game needs, it helps the pc players play games that are otherwise dead on pc because pc players dont like playing good games.

also the game isnt called fifa 23 since ea doesnt own fifa rights anymore, plus fifa is a garbage trash boring ass game, but that still doesnt mean you should be mad over crossplay since it helps pc players more and well brings the gaming community together so everyone can play with their buddies on other platforms which is what gaming was lacking in the early days of xbox live 1.0 and playstation network 1.0
