Sorry, Switch Owners Won’t Be Getting Cross-Play For FIFA 23

What we think is the least surprising news for Switch owners is that the upcoming FIFA 23 will include a crossplay feature – but not for Switch. For the first time in franchise history, PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players will be able to play together, leaving Switch fans in despair as we’ve no doubt come to terms with yet another “Legacy Edition.”

While nothing has been officially announced at the time of writing, it is also reported that FIFA 23 will include both the Men’s and Women’s World Cups, and EA is looking to expand its licensing partnership to provide an all-inclusive FIFA experience. Perhaps, at the very least, we can look forward to this particular addition in the Switch version.

Finally, EA’s Hypermotion technology is reported to have received a major upgrade. Because xfire states that “the technology has been improved tenfold and now allows the development team to capture animations of real football players in real matches using stadium cameras, eliminating the need for Xsens suits.” Sounds pretty chic!

This all comes after reports that FIFA’s license itself may, in fact, be revoked, with EA CEO Andrew Wilson appearing to be indifferent to the matter. If FIFA 23 does turn out to be the last FIFA-branded game, it could pave the way for a more modern Switch version. Well, at least we can hope.

Given EA’s track record, it’s likely that we’ll learn more about the next game in the FIFA series this summer.
