After much anticipation, Sega and Sports Interactive have announced the new Football Manager game – Football Manager 2021 which will release on November 24th on the Epic Games Store and Steam. In somewhat surprising news, the 2021 game will also release on the Xbox family of consoles in December with no word on a PlayStation version. FM 21 Touch will be available for the Nintendo Switch in the same month.
In a press release, Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive’s studio director 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.
The return for Football Manager to Xbox comes after the last release thirteen years ago in 2007. Sports Interactive say the Xbox version is “specifically tailored version of the game”, and “has been fully customised for optimal performance with the Xbox controller.”
Football Manager 2021 on Xbox will also be a Play Anywhere digital title allowing players to play the same save file between Windows 10 PC and their Xbox console.
