Football Manager 2021 Coming to Xbox; Gets Release Date for PC Launch

September 24, 2020
Xbox One
Also on: PC

Football Manager 2021 will be releasing for PC on November 24, and will also be coming out on Xbox some time before the end of the year.

This will be the first time that a Football Manager game has come out on an Xbox console in over a decade, and this year you’ll be able to take advantage of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program. The program will allow you to purchase the game once on the Windows 10 Store or the Xbox Store, then use the same save game across any platform included in the Xbox ecosystem, including the next generation of Xbox consoles, while only paying for the game once. 

Although there isn’t a set release date for the game on Xbox, it will be optimised for controllers according to the game’s developer, Sports Interactive.

In addition, the mobile versions of the game will be releasing at some point this year as well. Football Manager 2021 Touch will be available as a standalone game on Steam and the Epic Store, and will be free for anyone who purchases Football Manager 2021 on PC. If you’re exclusively a mobile gamer, you can purchase the mobile version on iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch when they release.

If you don’t want to wait, you can also pre-order the game for 10% off from one of SEGA's approved retailers, and doing so will allow you to play the game two weeks before it officially launches.

All of this is big news for fans of the franchise, and seeing as we loved last year's game, you can be sure to read about any new information the game gets here on Jump Dash Roll!

Somebody once told me the world was going to roll me, and they were right. I love games that let me take good-looking screenshots and ones that make me depressed, so long as the game doesn't overstay its welcome.
