Football Manager 2020 starts on November 8th!
Football Manager 2023 will release on November 8th through a wide variety of platforms including PlayStation 5, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, Google Stadia, and Apple Arcade.
For the first time ever in the history of the series, the depth and dramatic intensity of the football management game most famous in the world comes to PlayStation 5. Optimized for the DualSense™ controller, Football Manager 23 console edition will be released alongside PC/Mac version.
After one year away, our popular series “Touch” returns with new episodes through the Apple platform called Apple Arcade. Whatever device they use – an iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV – Apple Arcade subscribers will leave their mark on the lawn and outside in FM23 Touch.
“FM 23 marks a significant step for the series, since we’re making our debut on two new platforms. Our players asked us to develop a PS4 title for some time now, so I am happy to announce these gamers and women who will be able to experience an authentic football coach experience.” says Miles Jacobson, director of the Sports Interactive Studio.
With FM23 we’ve brought together even more fans from across the world for every aspect of the game in all domains, including supporters filling the stands at matches, recruiters, players and coaches alike, and new competitions under license such as UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League. We’re going to reveal the latest features of the game through our social media channels Football Manager, the official website Football Manager and the Football Manager Community, our members’ community.
From today onwards and until the launch, fans who pre-order FM23 from an approved digital retailer will receive a 20% discount and the chance to start their career as a game developer earlier than expected with early access to FM23. The feature for purchasing games from the Microsoft Store will be available soon.
**The Early Access version will be available through Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store approximately two weeks before the official release date and players who start their careers during this period will continue playing in the full game.
Those who buy physical editions of FM23 will notice that this year’s edition doesn’t include any discs. Instead, each box contains a unique code which, after use, gives access to the game through Steam, Epic Games, or Microsoft Store.
By removing the disc and booklet from last year’s edition, we’ve been able to cut down on our overall carbon footprint by 47%, compared to last year’s edition. Overall, the equivalent CO2 emissions for the packaging of Football Manager 2019 has gone down from 256 to just 66.
Formerly known as Xbox Edition, FM23 Console joins FM23 and will be available on the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass™ on launch day. Members of Xbox Game Pass for console will enjoy the comfort of their couch to focus on the most important aspects of soccer: transfer market, tactics board and pitch. Meanwhile, members of Xbox Game Pass for PC will benefit from the depth and realism unequaled anywhere else in FM23. Both titles will be available to members of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Football Manager 2023 for mobile devices (iOS and Android) prepares itself for a new season crowned by success. More details about its features will be revealed in October before its release date scheduled for November 8th.
Besides Apple Arcade, Football Manager 2033 for iOS and Android devices will be available on Nintendo Switch.
