Yesterday, Sports Interactive confirmed the release date for Football Manager 2021 (24th November on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store), but the announcement was overshadowed by a kerfuffle about why the game is not coming out on PlayStation when it is coming out on Xbox.
This year, Football Manager returns to Xbox for the first time since 2007. Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition is described as a “specifically tailored” version of the game, based upon the Touch series of Football Manager, fully customised for use with an Xbox controller.
FM21 Xbox, as it’s called, will be available from the Xbox Store and is a Play Anywhere digital title, which means you can play your save game across your Xbox and any Windows 10 PC. FM21 Xbox is available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S – you pay once and you can play across the Xbox consoles.
