EA SPORTS are reportedly preparing a rollout of cross-platform play for FIFA 22 just months before FIFA 23 comes out, according to a new leak. 

Cross-play between Xbox, PlayStation, and PC players has been on the community’s wishlist for some time.

While it was expected to make its debut in the next installment of the video game series, it could be tried out sooner than expected.

Soon enough, FIFA players on all platforms will be able to play together – according to leaks.

On March 23, a report from industry insider Tom Henderson – and FIFA leaker Fut Sheriff – suggested that the feature will be tested out in the current game first, which would be an unprecedented step for the franchise.

Sheriff said: “Cross-play will be tested in FIFA 22. Probably won’t be on Ultimate Team, but is def coming in FIFA 23!”

DonkTrading, another high-profile member of the FIFA 22 community, has also posted about the development.

In recent years, EA has added content in the middle of a game’s life cycle, from CONMEBOL Libertadores content in FIFA 20 to a new David Beckham ICON in FIFA 21. Therefore, should this leak prove to be accurate, it shouldn’t come as a total shock to fans.

At the time of writing, Electronic Arts has not moved to confirm or reject the speculation surrounding cross-platform play. Though, with FIFA 23 expected in October 2022 and the next few months being dedicated to hyping up that launch, it’s likely that the picture will be clearer in due course.

A number of other details related to FIFA 23 have previously leaked, including World Cup content plans.
