FIFA 23 Cross-play Explained

Ultimate Team Matchmaking

Players will now have cross-platform play matchmaking across Xbox, PlayStation and PC for 1-v-1 modes in FUT. Those modes include Ultimate Dreamt, FUT Champions, Division Rivals, Online Friendlies and Play a Friend. As noted in the Deep Dive, this is a feature to opt-in to. If players don't want to take part in cross-play, they don't have to.

This applies to players on the same generation of consoles. There will not be cross-platform play, according to EA, for example from PlayStation 5 to Xbox One.
