There are benefits to being unpopular: your copy of FIFA 23 won’t break on PS5. EA Sports released a statement earlier this week confirming that it’s exploring stability issues in the soccer sim introduced in a recent title update. Its temporary solution? “Reduce your PS5 friends list to 100 or less friends and re-launch the game.”

Exactly why this issue is occurring is unclear, but apparently it’s not something the development team at EA Sports accounted for. We’re sure this will be fixed pretty promptly, but it’s an amusing issue nonetheless. Still, there’s never been a better time to cull your friends list – and if anyone asks, you can just blame FIFA 23!

Have you had any issues with FIFA 23 since the latest update? Are you a social butterfly with hundreds of PlayStation friends? You can read all the latest on the known bugs in EA Sports’ football franchise on the publisher’s Trello page. Meanwhile, work continues on successor EA Sports FC, with an official unveiling expected in July.
