Oh boy, there goes another thousand or so hours of my life. The next installment of the popular Football Manager series is on the horizon, and it’s set to take up a very large chunk of your life when it launches on November 9. Football Manager 2022 will continue the trend of highly addicting and in-depth simulation that the series has developed such a stellar reputation for. The Football Manager 2022 announcement also came with an FM22 announcement trailer that dropped that fits the themes of announcement trailers for past FM games – where it shows you various aspects to being a football manager in the game and real life.
The biggest news ahead of finding out what’s new in this year’s Football Manager game is the news that FM22 will be available for no additional cost for people who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass. As with last year, there will be an Xbox console version, and that version, along with the PC version on the Windows Store, will be available for download for Xbox Game Pass members. Nintendo Switch and mobile versions are also in the works for people who get the FM fix on those platforms, however.
Anyone interested in getting FM22 can pre-order from approved retailers for 10% off. Like with previous Football Manager games, around two weeks from release, a beta for the game will become available for the purpose of bug reporting.
What do you make of this Football Manager 2022 announcement, or the trailer? Are you looking forward to the release date of November 9? Will the news about FM22 being available via Xbox Game Pass make you want to try it out if you haven’t done so before?
