Football isn’t just about being the best and winning; success means more when it’s earned, and fans can take on the challenge of earning success for their favourite club in Football Manager 2022. The latest release in Sports Interactive’s and SEGA’s iconic series will debut on November 9th on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store.
Football Manager Xbox Edition also makes its return following a successful campaign last season. Tailored for the Xbox ecosystem, FM22 Xbox Edition will release alongside the PC/Mac title on November 9th.
Both FM22 and FM22 Xbox Edition will be available with Xbox Game Pass on Day One, in a historic first for the series. Xbox Game Pass for PC members can enjoy the unparalleled depth and realism of FM22 while Xbox Game Pass for Console members can handle the managerial essentials from the comfort of their sofa with FM22 Xbox Edition. Both titles will be available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.
Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive’s Studio Director, said: “FM22 will break new ground for the Football Manager series as we arrive on Day One with Xbox Game Pass. The success of our return to Xbox last year surpassed even our expectations and we’re delighted to be expanding our partnership with Microsoft to give Game Pass members the chance to experience the closest thing to being a real football manager.”
FM22 brings new, progressive ways for managers to find their winning edge and instil their footballing style to cement their legacy as a managerial great. We’ll be unveiling new game features in the coming weeks across the Football Manager social channels and the Football Manager website.
From today until launch, fans who pre-purchase FM22 (for PC and Mac), from a SEGA-approved digital retailer* will receive a 10% discount and the chance to kick-off their managerial career ahead of schedule with Early Access to FM22. Pre-purchase directly from the Microsoft Store will be available soon.
Early Access will be available via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store roughly two weeks prior to the official street date, and single player careers started in that period can be carried across to the final game.
Football Manager 2022 Mobile (on iOS and Android) is also lacing up for the new season and will be available on November 9th with feature information to be unveiled in October.
Full release details on Football Manager 2022 Touch, including our return to Nintendo Switch are coming soon.
