Madden 23 is a popular sports video game based around the National Football League. It is the ultimate video game for football or rugby fans from all around the world. A vast majority of the human population may not be able to play in the NFL, but they can certainly get a glimpse of what that’s like through Madden 23.
The last few entries to this sports game series have received slightly unfavorable responses. Despite this, many die-hard fans still play the game on a regular basis. This can be easily attributed to how rewarding the game can be if you truly are a football fan. Not only that, but the game also allows you to play with other football fans online.
The game is currently out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and Windows. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t allow these consoles to match with one another.
Madden 23’s Missing Cross-Platform Feature
As of 2022, Madden 23 does not support cross-platform. PC players will only be able to play online football with other PC players. PlayStation 4 players will only be able to play with other PS4 players, and so on and so forth.
What’s even worse is that the game also doesn’t support cross-generation play. This means Xbox One players won’t be able to play with Xbox Series X players. The game’s online capabilities are ultimately restricted to the console or platform you’re on, considering also the console’s generation.
This makes online matching extremely limited, which is highly unfortunate. It’s one feature fans of the game, the series, and the sport has called for since Madden 23’s release.
Will Madden 23 Have Cross-Platform In the Future?
If fans demand the feature enough, EA may listen and implement it in the future. However, it’s better to assume otherwise.
Madden is a sports video game. Like many other sports titles, Madden gets a yearly release. EA may already be working on the next Madden title. If a Madden game does receive a cross-platform feature, it’s likely it won’t be Madden 23. It will be the next Madden game.
