Earlier this year Football Manager Classic 2014 released on Vita, continuing the trend of the series appearing on Sony handheld. Since 2006 the franchis has appeared on both PSP and Vita, but another instalment is unlikely due to poor sales on Sony’s current portable console. This announcement was made by Sports Interactive head Miles Jacobson in an interview with Digital Spy, where he stated that another Vita entry was only to be considered if sales were good.
The poor sales could have been to a number of reasons like sales for the Vita being slow, as well as the fact that Football Manager Classic 2014 didn’t release until a few weeks before the end of the 2013/14 season. By then most fans would probably have already picked up the PC version of the game. That isn’t to say Sports Interactive haven’t been tinkering with ideas for another Vita entry. Miles said as much.
“We know what we want to do if we were to do another version, and we still might do. I’m not ruling it out entirely, but it’s not looking likely.”
Hopefully the future will allow an environment where Sports Interactive will release another Football Manager on Vita.
