Football Manager 2021’s release date has been announced. Sports Interactive’s next soccer sim title will arrive before the end of the year, and it isn’t just coming to the usual platforms.
FM 2021 has only been available on PC and Mac since 2007. However, the critically-acclaimed management game is coming to other systems. The last Football Manager game that was ported to consoles was FM 2007, which came out on the Xbox 360. It seems safe to assume, then, that FM 2021 will be coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X. So, is this year’s entry in the franchise going to launch on Microsoft’s current-gen and next-gen consoles?
Yes, FM 2021 is coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One. This was confirmed in the game’s announcement trailer, which was uploaded to the official Football Manager YouTube channel. FM 2021’s Xbox version will be released by the end of the year, but there is no official release date yet. Once we hear more, we will update this guide.
The Xbox version of FM 2021 will be known as Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition. The port will be a specifically tailored version, which has been modeled on the Football Manager Touch series for mobile devices. FM 2021 Xbox Edition has been fully customised to work with an Xbox controller too, so you won’t need to plug in a mouse and keyboard to play it.
FM 2021 will also be an Xbox Play Anywhere title. That means that, no matter what version you buy, you can play your save game across Xbox console and Windows 10 computers. More information on FM 2021 Xbox Edition will be announced in early November.
