If you’re planning to begin your pursuit of promoting your local team to the Premier League in FIFA 21 this week, then you may want to pause before investing too much effort. In an FAQ on its official website, EA Sports has announced that not all your progress will transfer from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5 – even though you’ll get the game for free.
“All progress you make or content you acquire within FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (including players, items, coins, FIFA Points, match record, and leaderboard placement), as well as all progression in Volta Football will transfer from PS4 to PS5 and back,” the company explains. “Progress within all other modes including Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode, [and] Pro Clubs will be specific to the console you are playing on and won’t transfer between consoles.”
Other titles like DIRT 5, Maneater, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon have also confirmed that they won’t feature cross-save, which has led to some frustration among PlayStation fans. However, this does seem to be down to the individual developer, as releases like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales have promised that progress will transfer.
