The new part of the Football Manager series from SEGA will be released on 8 November. For the first time, the game will also be available on PlayStation and returns to the tablet
While still suspended in Football Manager 2022, the touch version of SEGA’s simulation returns to Apple devices via the Apple Arcade platform.
“Our decision not to release a touch game for iOS or Android in 2021 was a difficult one and disappointing for some of our fans. This exciting partnership with Apple Arcade allows us to bring back a popular title in a way that makes sense for both us as a studio and the wider FM community,” said Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Interactive.
In addition to the returnee, however, there is also a new addition. On console, the FM was previously only available on Xbox, but that changes with the new instalment. For the first time, coaching and managerial life can also be simulated on PlayStation – but only on the Next-Gen, i.e. PlayStation 5.
Console version slimmed down?
“Fans have been asking for a PlayStation title from us for years and I’m delighted that gamers now have the chance to experience a real football manager,” said Jacobson.
However, expect trimmed-down features on the console version. As the release states, console members will “focus on the most important areas of football – transfers, tactics and match days – from the comfort of their sofa.” PC members, meanwhile, will have “the unparalleled depth and realism of FM23. “
New licensed competitions
Also new in the baggage: The licences for the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Conference League. Which innovations the game features will be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series XS and One, the game will also be released on PC via Steam and the Epic Store. The Touch version is also available for the Nintendo Switch. Like the years before, the simulation is also included in the Gamepass.
