Football Manager 2021 will be released on November 24 for PC and Mac via Steam and Epic Games Store. The game will also arrive on Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X before the end of the year – the first time the series has been on an Xbox console since 2007.
Preorders for the Steam and Epic versions of the game are open now, and will offer a 10% discount, as well as approximately two weeks of early access ahead of the launch date – single player games started in early access will carry over to the final game.
Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition of the game will be a Play Anywhere title, meaning a single purchase will allow you to play the game through Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and Windows 10 PC, with save transfers across all versions. It will be modified specifically for the console format, including for use with a controller. Full features and functionality will be announced later.
The less fully-featured Football Manager Touch for PC, Mac, Switch, iOS and Android will also arrive soon. On Switch, it will arrive in December, and other platform release dates will be announced in October.
We awarded Football Manager 2020 an 8.7 review, calling it “a brilliant update to a brilliant series.”
