Reports are coming in about some of the new features that’ll feature in this year’s iteration of EA Sports’ soccer sim, FIFA 23.

The news comes from a Xfire report by serial EA scoop-snooper Tom Henderson. According to the report, next year’s entry will feature cross-play support for the first time. This should allow players from Xbox, PlayStation & PC to play together across “all” of FIFA 23‘s game modes.

Furthermore, the report also claims that this year’s game will feature both the Women’s and Men’s World Cup. EA has apparently expanded its license, with the developer intending to bring the men’s & women’s divisions closer together and more part of the same game.

Elsewhere, the report also claims that EA are making improvements to its HyperMotion technology. The feature was FIFA 22‘s flagship addition, allowing the team to motion-capture an entire 22 man game of football. With the improvements, the report claims, the team can now capture animation data from real matches with stadium cameras. This has resulted in the team being able to nab over 100 times more data in a season than was previously possible across the FIFA series’ entire 29 year history.

For the time being, the next entry in the game is still set to be named FIFA 23. However, recent comments reportedly made by EA CEO Andrew Wilson indicate this could change for future instalments. EA is yet to confirm either story, but hopefully we’ll hear more soon.
