F1 Manager 2022 announced for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC
Frontier Developments, the developer behind Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous, has announced F1 Manager 2022 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
The upcoming title will let players step into the shoes of a Team Principal for any of the 10 teams from the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship. Players must manage the day-to-day running of their team, deal with sponsorships and regulation changes, scout talent from the lower Formulas, and more to achieve success.
Once the lights go out, players must decide on driver callouts, pit strategy, and tire choices while reacting to dynamic race events such as safety cars and weather changes. Frontier promises “a hyper-realistic simulation of an official F1 race, presented in true-to-life broadcast quality.”
“There’s never been a better time to be a Formula 1 fan, and we’re excited to deliver a new way for F1 fans to immerse themselves in the biggest racing spectacle in the world,” game director Andy Fletcher said. “F1 Manager 2022 will deliver an experience for both new and long-term fans that is as authentic as it is exciting. Our commitment to the ever-changing world of Formula 1 will build a strong foundation for a long and special series that will evolve over time.”
“It’s great to see F1 Manager 2022 take shape and for people to see this exciting title come to life. I know from personal experience that leading a team can be challenging, but it’s certainly rewarding,” Ross Brawn, managing director of motorsports for Formula One, added. “The F1 Manager franchise is a great opportunity for fans to put themselves in the shoes of a team principal and experience some of that for themselves. I am confident that with their own successful track record in management gaming, Frontier will deliver an enjoyable and engaging experience for fans.”
F1 Manager 2022 is set to release this summer for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
