With the new football season underway, the annual announcement of the new Football Manager game is upon us.
Football Manager 2023 has been officially unveiled and players across the globe can now start getting excited about sinking hours and hours and hours into the new game.
Here’s everything we know so far.
FM23 will be released on November 8, but fans who pre-order the game from an official retailer will get access to the game early.
As is the case every year, FM23 will be available earlier than the official release date for those with relevant pre-orders.
The FM23 beta will be released around two weeks before November 8, with previous releases occasionally coming even earlier.
PC and Mac remain the focal point for FM23 but, for the first time ever, the game will be released on PlayStation 5.
The PS5 release will go alongside the Xbox version, now branded FM23 Console, with FM23 Touch set to return on Apple Arcade.
As of yet, there have been no new features confirmed for FM23.
Sports Interactive have confirmed that they are looking to add women’s football to the Football Manager series but no time frame has been put on that.
While the new licenses have not yet been confirmed, the release trailer for FM23 appeared to contain Champions League branding, suggesting UEFA’s premier competition could be introduced to the game for the first time.
