EA is limiting the cross-play functionality to only two modes to limit the possibility of introducing new “game-breaking” bugs. FIFA 22 will also give players the option to enable or disable cross-play from different menus. Symbols will appear during matches when a player on another platform, but EA assures players the core functions of the game will stay the same.
It is interesting to note that FIFA’s Stadia integration could offer a much bigger impact due to the larger pool of potential competitors because of the platform’s smaller player base.
