Football Manager 2022 joining Xbox Game Pass at launch
Sega and Sports Interactive have announced that this year’s entry in the Football Manager series will be available through Xbox Game Pass on both PC and console from day one.
Football Manager 2022 will introduce “progressive ways for managers to find their winning edge and instil their footballing style to cement their legacy as a managerial great,” according to developer Sports Interactive. More information about this year’s entry will be shared “in the coming weeks.”
“FM22 will break new ground for the Football Manager series as we arrive on Day One with Xbox Game Pass,” Miles Jacobson, studio director at Sports Interactive, said. “The success of our return to Xbox last year surpassed even our expectations and we’re delighted to be expanding our partnership with Microsoft to give Game Pass members the chance to experience the closest thing to being a real football manager.”
Players who choose to pre-purchase the game for PC or Mac through Sega-approved digital retailers or the Microsoft Store will receive a 10 percent discount and early access to the game roughly two weeks before launch.
Football Manager 2022 and Football Manager 2022 Xbox Edition launch November 9th, 2021.
