This of course will be the first Madden title fully released in the post next-gen era. Madden 21 was released just months before next-gen consoles came out, and then had to be re-worked for a next-gen compatible version.
One of the pending questions from last years title was whether or not it would be cross-play compatible. While Madden 21 did not bring this feature to life, there is hope for cross-play in this years edition of the most popular EA Sports football franchise.

Cross-generation in Madden 22
The next-gen consoles released in the middle of the Madden 21 cycle, and a big worry for many gamers surrounded cross-generational capabilities. This of course was a hot topic due to progress made in Ultimate Team, Face of the Franchise, and other game modes.
Thankfully, Madden 21 was cross-generation compatible and even offered a free next-gen upgrade to those who had already purchased the title. Given this information, we have no reason to believe why Madden 22 wouldn't be a cross-generational title, which is great to hear for many gamers.
The EA Sports cross-generation status leaves only one question, will Madden 22 be cross-platform compatible?
Cross-platform in Madden 22
At the time of writing, there is still no word from EA Sports on whether or not Madden 22 will operate in a cross-platform capacity. However, the Madden 22 team has spent the last few weeks spotlighting new features of the upcoming title.
It's entirely possible we could see the question of cross-platform status addressed directly by EA Sports in the coming weeks. It'll be worth tuning in to the next edition of Madden 22 All-Access on EA Sports various media outlets.
