FIFA 21 Title Update 10 patch finally addresses ‘initialising’ game search error

EA SPORTS have revealed the patch notes for the latest major update to FIFA 21, which finally addresses the 'initialising' game search error message.

It was confirmed last night (Monday) that Title Update 10 is now available for on FIFA 21 for PC players, with the update coming soon to players on Xbox and PlayStation. It's likely that console players will be able to download this update next week.

The update overall is small compared to previous title updates, but this particular update does address one of the most irritating things about FIFA 21, the 'initialising' game search error message in Division Rivals. This message would appear and hang around for ages when trying to match up with a player on FUT 21, leaving players unable to back out and try to find a new game.
