NHL 22 won’t have crossplay of any nature, whether it be across systems or generations. That means you will only be able to play against those on the same console as you.
The game will be released on four different platforms this year: Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 (PS4), and PlayStation 5 (PS5). Because of that, the player base will now be divided into four areas rather than the usual two.
With modes like the World of Chel and Hockey Ultimate Team, there’s obvious concern that there won’t be enough players to get into online matchups quickly enough. The EASHL community, which relies on up to 12 players per game, is especially concerned about the limited number of players available.
SGO has reached out to EA Sports for confirmation and more on this decision. We’ll update the story accordingly should a response be received.
