Formula 1 games have been around for over 20 years, but there hasn’t been an officially licensed F1 game that allows you to manage a Formula 1 team for years. F1 Manager 2022 is going to change this history. Frontier Development announced that F1 Manager 22 is coming out on August 25.
Thanks to Netflix, Formula 1 is getting more and more popular these days. Without a doubt, Drive to Survive, a Netflix show that covers a certain season of Formula 1, helps this popularity a lot. On the gaming side, things are the same as well. Every year a new F1 simulation game is developed by Codemaster and published by Electronic Arts. But there has never been released a management game until this year.
F1 Manager 22 is an officially licensed Formula 1 manager game that puts you in the shoes of team principals. The game is being developed by British video game developer Frontier Developments. The company is known for its works on Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster, and Jurassic World Evolution.
Complete Control Over The Team
If you are interested in Formula 1, you know that Formula 1 is not all about cars and drivers. There are so many politics and strategies that team principals need to take care of. While F1 drivers are competing on the track, team principals help them and need to make the right decisions on the way to victory.
F1 Manager 22 is a game that focuses on team principals, and this is why there is no driving in this game. You will be responsible for almost everything about the team, including managing team budgets, hiring drivers and staff, creating race strategies, and more. The game literally gives you complete control over the team and strategy.
Speaking of complete control over the team, you should expect that you will be in charge of everything from developing strategy to necessary mechanic parts of the car. For example, car updates are extremely detailed in the game. So, you’ll need to consider lots of things to comes first at the end, such as the characteristics of the track, car, aerodynamics, engine, and gearbox.
Hiring is another duty you are responsible for. As in the Football Manager games, there is scouting in F1 Manager 22. You have to keep an eye on F2 and F3 to fill your driver’s seat with a talented driver in the future.
F1 Manager 2022 Release Date
British video game developer company, Frontier Development, announced that F1 Manager 2022 is going to be launched on August 25, nearly two months later than EA’s F1 22 game. With the release date announcement, a new gameplay trailer was also revealed. It seems that Formula 1 fans are going to be amazed by these two games this summer.
