Microsoft has confirmed, via the official Xbox channels, that Football Manager 2023 will arrive on Xbox Game Pass since launch. The management simulator developed by Sports Interactive will in fact be available on the Microsoft service, allowing subscribers to be able to play the title at no additional cost.
“Xbox Game Pass is proud to confirm the renewal of Football Manager 2023 for a new season that we hope will be hot.” This is the announcement of the arrival of the Sports Interactive title on the service. In addition to Xbox, the game will also be released on PC (Steam, Epic Games and Windows Store) and Mobile. In the future, versions for PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade will also arriveas also reported on the site.
Unfortunately, the PlayStation 5 version of the game will not be released in conjunction with the first launch. On the Sony console there would seem to have been problems in the submission and approval process, mandatory practice to have your game published on PlayStation Store. For that reason, the release was postponed to a later date. The team has already initiated refunds for everyone who booked it.
“We are devastated by this postponement, as we have been working tirelessly with our partners for a number of weeks to try and avert it. It was particularly difficult to make the decision to postpone the release, as this is not releasing a great game that many talented people within SI have been working hard on for a long time. We will continue to do everything in our power to get this game into the hands of PS5 players as soon as possible, ”said Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Interactive, on November 1, 2022.
