SEGA and Sports Interactive have confirmed the release date for Football Manager 21, with the management sim set to be available from November 24th. Alongside the release date announcement the developers also revealed that Football Manager 21 will be available on a lot more devices than before. For the first time since 2007 Football Manager will be available on Xbox consoles including the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series X. That is in addition to the release on PC through Steam, Epic Games Store, and Microsoft Store. Football Manager Touch 21 will be available on PC as well as mobile devices and Nintendo Switch as well.
Football Manager 21 Xbox Edition will be similar to the Touch version of the game but will have been changed to run on Microsoft’s family of consoles so it is easy to play using the controller. Sports Interactive’s studio director, Miles Jacobson, said:
“Football Manager 2021 is a historic release for us as a studio. We’re bringing FM to more platforms than ever before and giving more people the chance to manage their favourite club – whether that’s on their PC, from the comfort of their sofa or on their phone or tablet.”
Anyone who pre-purchases Football Manager 21 on PC will get a 10% discount, and early access to the game as well. Early Access will likely be available in early November approximately two weeks before Football Manager 21 releases on November 24th, and will be for those who purchase through Steam or Epic Games Store. SEGA and Sports Interactive have not yet gone into details of the changes players can expect to see in Football Manager 21, but will be disclosing those throughout the month of October.
