FIFA 23 is a football simulator developed by Electronic Arts. The game, set to release on 30 September 2022, will bring many new features, including some long-awaited ones. Right on top of this list is crossplay, the ability to play the game’s multiplayer mode with people who play the game on a different plaform (read this official article by EA for details). Other notable features include the addition of women’s football leagues, World Cup championship mode, and improved animations.
The game has generated quite a lot of hype – the fact that it’s the last game to be released under the FIFA name might’ve had something to do with this – and that, naturally, made owners of Apple computers ask certain questions. Is FIFA 23 release date for Mac already known? When will FIFA 23 release on macOS? And, perhaps most pertinently, will there be a FIFA 23 Mac version at all?
Here at AppsOnMac, it is our job to answer these questions. All you need to do is to read the article below.
FIFA 23 release date for Mac
Unfortunately, Electronic Arts did not announce FIFA 23 macOS release (as of yet). The game, as we’ve already mentioned, will release on the 30th of September, however, it will only become available on Windows, Switch, as well as the current and previous generations of PlayStation and Xbox consoles. It is also unlikely that FIFA 23 macOS version is being worked on; EA would likely have announced it by now if this was the case.
That said, it is not completely impossible for FIFA 23 to receive a Mac port. The precedent is there, as FIFA 12 had an official Mac version. That said, considering that this was both the first and the last FIFA game to be ported, it is likely that EA determined that porting FIFA games to Mac was not worth the effort.
Overall, the situation looks quite grim for those seeking to play on Mac. It is unlikely that Mac will ever be supported by this game, at least officially. But several unofficial solutions exist. Our recent article, “How to play FIFA 23 on Mac“, will explain what these are and provide simple instructions on how to use them.
