EA Explains Why All FIFA 21 Progress Won't Carry Over to Next-Gen

EA has offered an explanation regarding current-gen to next-gen data transfer for FIFA 21, and why not everything will move across from Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S or from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5. When FIFA 21 launches for next-gen, EA's Dual Entitlement will grant access to the new version of the game at no additional cost.

However, only your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team progress, including your acquired player cards, items, coins, FIFA Points, leaderboard placement, and match record will carry over, alongside progression through the game's Volta mode. Progress in modes like Co-Op Seasons, Online Seasons, Career Mode, and Pro Clubs won't move across, as these are not server-based like Volta and FUT.

"When we start developing for a new generation of consoles, there's ultimately some trade-offs we need to make," EA clarified (via Eurogamer). "So we decided that the time required to make all modes transferable was better used to build new features and improvements across the entire game, along with addressing feedback from our players. Since both Volta and FUT are server-based modes it made sense for us to focus on them as a way for players to carry over their progression."

At least now you know the score when purchasing FIFA 21, which launches for non-early access folks on 9th October. It's also worth noting that there won't be cross-play support across current and next-gen versions of the game.
