If you upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 to next-gen, you won't be able to keep some of your save data from the current generation due to development "trade-offs." Eurogamer spoke to FIFA executive producer Aaron McHardy about how the game's Dual Entitlement upgrades will work, confirming that save data from Online Seasons, Co-Op Seasons, Career Mode and Pro Clubs won't transfer between generations, if players plan to make the jump from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to an Xbox Series console. "When we start developing for a new generation of consoles, there's ultimately some trade-offs we need to make. 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," McHardy explains. "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."

We reviewed FIFA 21, scoring it a 7 and calling it a "year of small improvements with much to enjoy, but little to shout about." EA was recently pressured to pull advertisements from a toy catalogue that was marketing FIFA Points to children. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Jordan Oloman is a freelance writer for IGN.
